AS Monaco coach Guy Lacombe would be prepared to allow South Korea forward Park Chu-young to leave the club for a move to the Barclays Premier League if the right offer was made. The 25-year-old impressed at the World Cup and his performances have seen the former FC Seoul star linked with a move to the likes of Fulham, Aston Villa and Everton.

After Monaco played a pre-season friendly against K-League team Incheon United, Lacombe was quizzed about Park's future.

"I don't know anything about transfer rumours," he said. "Even if an offer came we have no mind to sell the player. but in football I think there is no such word as 'never'."
