Salomon Kalou: Eyeing a move back to the Premier League

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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
