Park Chu-Young linked with Premier League pair - report

New reports from the French press suggests Liverpool have joined Bolton in tracking the situation of Monaco's want-away Korean striker

Monaco striker Park Chu-Young is being chased by Premier League pair Liverpool and Bolton according to reports in France.

Park, 25, said earlier this week he'd be looking for a move away from Monaco after the club was relegated from Ligue 1.

L'Equipe has now reported Liverpool and Bolton are interested in the Korean international, who scored 12 goals during the 2010-11 season for Monaco.

Bolton boss Owen Coyle has reportedly been monitoring the former FC Seoul man's situation, while The Daily Mail claims Reds boss Kenny Dalglish has been scouting the Korean.

The Trotters already have one Korean in Lee Chung-Yong on their books.

Park is believed to be keen on a move to England and said earlier this week he'd like a new challenge at a big club.

"I would like to have new challenge in a stronger team capable of competing in bigger Europe-wide tournaments like the Champions League," said Park.

Park remains contracted with Monaco until mid-2013.
