The French side Lille signed Salomon Kalou back in 2012 and so far the former Chelsea player has made over 65 league appearances for Lille but Kalou is believed to be interested in making a return to the Premier League. A few days ago the manager of Lille, Rene Girard admitted to the media that the relationship between him and Kalou is not as healthy as it used to be some time ago as the Ivorian forward has even recently been skipping and missing out from pre-season training matches.
It still remains undecided as to what club he would prefer to join in the Premier League but it’s evident that his wish is to leave Lille. Everton, Liverpool and Arsenal are some of the English clubs which are being more associated and linked with Kalou.
Lille is interested in signing the Ghanaian attacker of Lorient Jordan Ayew and they could offload Salomon Kalou as a way to create just enough funds to sign their desired summer target. Kalou has a price tag in the region of £3m which means that just about any top club in the Premier League won’t have to break the bank to sign him.
The Italian club As.Roma has displayed their intention and desire in signing Salomon Kalou but the former Chelsea player is hoping he can receive an offer from a club in the Premier League as his wish is to make a return in England.
In the course of the January transfer window Arsenal launched a late offer hoping to sign Kalou but a deal was never completed and Arsene Wenger might still be interested in securing the services of the Ivorian forward. The Premier League is only a few weeks away from kicking off as time is ticking down for Kalou and if no offers are launched for the former Chelsea player, his desire to make a return to the Premier League might not be fulfilled.
