Ivorian star could be heading back to the Premier League…
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has earmarked a deal for Lille’s 28-year-old Ivorian attacker Salomon Kalou, reports the Daily Mail.
The former Chelsea star is available for only £2.6m, only a year after leaving Stamford Bridge on a free transfer to join the Ligue 1 club.
Kalou has revitalised his career in France, and enjoyed a very good season with Lille. The winger bagged 16 goals in all competitions, and also assists teammates six times.
Despite his good form and relatively low transfer fee – Kalou’s £60,000-a-week wages could be a stumbling block in any potential deal. Liverpool, West Brom and Cardiff were interested, but the salary demands meant no deal came to fruition.
Arsenal fans will no doubt look to Kalou’s questionable form in his last few seasons at Chelsea, and will not be excited by the potential deal. Rumoured transfer deals for Schalke’s German wonderkid Julian Draxler and Real Madrid trio Angel Di Maria, Mesut Ozil and Karim Benzema will no doubt be preferred, by a set of fans who have so far only seen French teenager Yaya Sanogo arrive on a free transfer.
Arsenal take on Tottenham this weekend in the north-London derby, knowing their rivals have spent almost £100m on transfers already this summer.
