Former Chelsea striker Kalou looking to leave Lille with Arsenal and Tottenham interested

Former Chelsea forward Salomon Kalou is ready to have a second crack at life in the Premier League, with London his preferred destination, according to The Daily Mail.

Salomon Kalou

Kalou spent six years at Stamford Bridge between 2006-2012, but moved to France to sign for Lille. He has enjoyed a successful spell there, helping Les Dogues to Champions League qualification with 16 goals, but despite being settled is thought to be keen to return to London, putting Tottenham and Arsenal on alert.

Kalou has been linked with Arsenal on more than one occasion previously, and has also revealed that he could have joined Tottenham on loan in January, but neither move materialised – though it is understood the 28-year-old would now like to look at his options in the capital, and would give serious consideration should a fresh approach be made.

Kalou initially moved to London when he signed for Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea in 2006 from Feyernoord, for a fee reportedly worth around £9m. He departed at the end of his existing deal in 2012, at the same time as Jose Bosingwa, and Lille boss Raul Garcia admitted it had been difficult to convince the Ivory Coast international to join the club.

He has scored 23 goals in 64 caps for the Ivory Coast since making his debut in 2007.
