Arsenal’s ambition to land Salomon Kalou will continue on despite already having attempted to sign the Ivorian on 2 occasions since last summer. Wenger launched an offer towards Lille during the January transfer window hoping to sign the former Chelsea player but it got rejected, however that will not stop the Frenchman on preparing another bid.
Kalou is aware of Arsenal’s interest as he revealed his intentions of returning to the Premier League and that the only reason why the initial bid of Arsenal was rejected is because the Ivorian player wants to help Lille finish the season on a positive note.
“If I have the chance to go back, I would love to, because it’s the most exciting league in the world so I would like to try it again. I have to focus on doing well here and then the World Cup is coming, so I have to focus on that, too’’.
“I’m having a great time here. We want to qualify for the Champions League; we want to win the French Cup. I need to keep fit and go to the World Cup with a lot of ambition because there is a good opportunity for the Ivory Coast there.” Kalou stated as he responded to question concerning his near future.
Salomon Kalou wants to focus on the remaining matches which are left in the French league, Ligue 1 as he wants Lille to finish in the top 3 spots.
Arsenal’s chase to secure the services of a high profile attacker is far from over as they failed to sign Luis Suarez, Alvaro Morata and Gonzalo Higuain. Kalou might be another viable option considering that Arsenal will not have to break the bank in order to sign him.
