The Ivory Coast international has struggled to settle in France since linking up with Lille as a free agent over the summer and has been linked with a return to England, with QPR, Everton and West Ham all reportedly interested.

The former Chelsea forward has netted just three times in 18 appearances this season and reports have suggested that he has been made available for transfer ahead of the January transfer window.

Lille are said to be willing to cash in on Kalou as they attempt to get their finances in order and improve performances on the field.

Kalou is, however, keen to honour the contract he signed on his arrival, with his agent attempting to play down reports that the 27-year-old could soon be on his way back to the Premier League.

"We are calm," said Kalou's brother Bonnaventure, who also acts as his representative.

"Salomon knows he has to work hard to reach his true level and show what he is capable of doing when he is in the best shape mentally."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
