Former Chelsea forward Kalou is a target for Roma, but the Ivory Coast international is stalling on the switch to Italy as he holds out for a return to England.

Arsenal tried to sign Kalou on loan during the January transfer window and the 28-year-old had set his sights on moving to the Emirates this summer, but the arrival of Alexis Sanchez means Arsene Wenger is unlikely to make a new move.

The likes of Liverpool and Tottenham are thought to be monitoring Kalou's situation with the forward thought to be available for a fee in the region of £3million.

Big-spending Monaco, and Turkish duo Galatasaray and Fenerbahce, have also expressed an interest in Kalou as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Kalou, who scored 16 goals last season for Lille, is believed to favour a move back to the Premier League as his preferred destination, but Lille are reluctant to lose their top goalscorer as they hope to reach the group stages of the Champions League.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
