Arsenal's Park Chu-young is likely to leave the English Premier League outfit, according to the Telegraph.

The British daily reported on Sunday that the Gunners want to transfer six players including Park in order to splash out on a new striker.

All six including Bacary Sagna, Emmanuel Frimpong, Lukas Fabianski, Nicklas Bendtner and Thomas Vermaelen have struggled to catch manager Arsène Wenger's attention and find opportunities to play for the team.

Park joined the club in 2011 but played in just six games during his first season. While playing for Celta Vigo on loan from 2012 to 2013, he scored four goals and one assist in 25 games. Although he returned to Arsenal this season, he has only made one appearance so far.

During the summer transfer season, rumors emerged that Park may be sent to Championship side Wigan Athletic or several French clubs, but these never bore fruit due to disagreements over the transfer fee.
