I just saw this story regarding Park Chu-young . He is a 24 year old South Korean striker who currently plays for AS Monaco. According to Skysports.com, the AS Monaco striker could be receiving interest from Fulham, Aston Villa, and Everton.

However, Skysports.com does have a quote from Park Chu-young where he indicates he is happy at AS Monaco.

Park Chu - young said "I'm happy here at Monaco and the club have looked after me well. I don't feel like leaving so soon."

In 2009, he scored 9 goals in 22 appearances with AS Monaco. Since 2005 he has scored 14 goals in 38 appearances for Korea Republic national football team.   

I will be following all the clubs in the EPL to see where they are trying to upgrade. It is interesting to see Fulham, Everton and Aston Villa could all be interested in the same striker. Ironically, Aston Villa has recently been linked to having interest in Bobby Zamora. 

Everton today actually has signed Jermaine Beckford a former striker from Leeds. According to skysports.com, the 26 year old striker has scored 85 goals in 152 games played in for Leeds. Everton might still be looking to further upgrade their club.

This Rumor Mill season will continue with interesting twists and turns. Let's hope Fulham can upgrade their club as other Premier League teams try to do the same.
