South Korea captain, Park Chu-Young is ready to leave French side Monaco and join Liverpool according to reports. The 26-year-old striker has been a target for German side Schalke but it is being suggested that he prefers a move to Anfield.

Park does not want to stay at Monaco for much longer especially since the club was relegated despite his 12 goals for them last season. Liverpool are in need of another striker this summer to provide backup and competition to Suarez and Carroll.

Park may not be the ‘big name’ many fans would want Liverpool to sign but from a financial perspective, signing Park would increase the popularity of the Liverpool brand in the Far East. But that aside, Park is also a very talented player. It would be interesting though to see ho he would adjust to the pace and physical nature of the Premier League if Liverpool do indeed sign him.

Do you think Park would be a good signing for Liverpool?
