Former-Chelsea winger Salomon Kalou would be willing to listen to offers from Liverpool, according to the Liverpool Daily Post.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers worked with Kalou for a number of years when both were at Chelsea, and although he is yet to formally approach the Ivorian, Rodgers is thought to be interested.

Kalou is out of contract after the Stamford Bridge side decided against offering him a new deal, bringing to an end his six-year association with the west London club.

And the player's agent, Rodger Linse, has confirmed that a move to Liverpool does appeal to the former-Chelsea man, although he did say that no contact had been made yet.

"There are conversations going on, and of course when that is happening then you must be careful what you say," said Linse. "Liverpool can speak for themselves, and Schalke can speak for themselves."

Brendan Rodgers took over as manager at Anfield last month, replacing Kenny Dalglish. The former-Swansea boss has been linked with a move for another player he's worked closely with, Hoffenheim midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The Icelandic midfielder is believed to be close to sealing a switch to Liverpool, and with the Reds in talks with Kalou, this summer could be shaping up to be quite an interesting one for the Merseyside club.
