Arsenal morning news: Klose 'upset' deal didn't go through as another striker leaves Emirates

Park Chu Young

All the latest news from The Emirates Stadium this morning.

Arsenal only managed to bring in one player on Transfer Deadline day - with Kim Kallstrom arriving on loan from Spartak Moscow.

However they reportedly made several attempts to bring in strikers on loan - including Newcastle United man Papiss Cisse and Solomon Kalou.

They were also said to be keen on bringing in German legend Miroslav Klose - but his club Lazio would not allow the move to go through.

Arsenal reportedly offered a £2 million loan fee for the player - but Lazio were not interested in letting him go, which reportedly left the veteran forward ‘upset’ with officials in Rome.

Klose is now expected to see out the season in Italy before heading to the MLS in the summer on a free transfer.

Arsenal have let one striker leave on deadline day however - with the South Korean flop Park Chu-Young heading to the Championship to join up with Watford.

The former Monaco star has failed to have any impact at The Emirates since his arrival and is now ready to try and get first-team football at Vicarage Road.

He is hoping it will push him into the South Korean national team, and their head coach Hong Myung-Bo has said of the move:

"I feel much relieved that he can make a fresh start. Park will have to show a good performance in the coming matches."

The deal is however still subject to clearance from the Premier League.

And Arsene Wenger has announced that Manchester City have had luck on their side in their recent rampant form.

He stated:

"Everybody speaks of course that they had an impressive win, and a great quality game as well at Tottenham, but if you analyse it well this game could have turned. All the turning points went in their favour. If they had not, then you are not sure they would have won the game."
