The former Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou has said that he is not looking for a move away from the French club Lille, despite reports linking him with a return to England with the Premier league club QPR.
The Ivory Coast international has been a major disappointment at the French club since his free transfer move in the summer. He has made 17 appearances for the club during this season, but has scored just three goals in all competitions. This has meant that Lille are struggling in the eighth position in the league with just two victories in the last five matches.
The Lille manager Rudi Garcia has said that the Lille fans should be showing a little bit of patience with respect to the former Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou, who has struggled for form since making his free transfer to the team in the summer.
The 26-year-old Ivory Coast international was released at the end of his six year spell with the London team in the summer. He decided to join the French club Lille after analysing various offers from clubs across Europe. However, he has not hit the heights the fans have expected due to a number of reasons.
Ivory Coast has defeated Senegal by a profound margin of 4-2 in a qualifier of the African Nations Cup. The match was played at the capital city of Ivory Coast i.e. Abidjan on Saturday. The Ivorian players didn’t disappoint the huge crowd that had come to watch their favourite players.
Lille has signed former Chelsea midfielder, Salomon Kalou, on a four year contract. The deal got finalized after Kalou passed a medical test. Before joining Lille, Kalou used to play for Chelsea. His contract with Chelsea got completed in July 2012 and he was released by Chelsea. He had been looking for a new club since then.
Former Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou is edging closer towards finding new club. The 26-year-old was released by Chelsea after his contract came to an end. He helped Chelsea win the Champions League in his final season with the club.
Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou has said that he will not rule out the possibility of moving across the town to archrivals Arsenal in the summer.
The 26-year-old Ivorian is out of contract at the end of the season. Chelsea have shown no interest in offering the player, who designed for £ 8 million in 2006, a new deal.
Salomon Kalou has been quite in demand in the last week by being bid upon by some of the clubs in the premiership. The last of these bids has come from West Ham United who is all keen to put on a huge bid amount for the transfer.
This is not new for the West Ham united team who had put forward a 6 million dollar deal for Nikica Jelavic. However, due to certain circumstances the bid was not accepted.
West Ham has not given up hope since then and has made sure that they be the first to get a deal for Salomon Kalou.
