Things are a bit slow now while we wait for Brazil (OtE: Brazil and a preview should be up later this week), but Ilgan Sports (the sports arm of the Joongang Daily, one of Korea’s big three papers) reported yesterday that Wigan was prepared to take Park Chu-Young on loan from Arsenal. The move makes sense for all parties, but whether A) it’s true (Ilgan Sports is picking it up from the Mirror, which is not the most reputable of sources), and B) it actually happens is another tale. Hopefully it does go through, Park could get some playing time to get back in shape for the summer, and Wigan is playing in Europe (Europa League) despite being in the Championship. Owen Coyle and Wigan get a striker, where they are currently a little short as Grant Holt is currently injured. Arsenal get an unwanted player (and some wages) off their hands for a bit. Everyone’s happy(er)!
