Salomon Kalou is having mixed feelings about a move to West Ham and the Premier League, according to the Daily Express.

It is thought Hammers' boss Sam Allardyce has had a £3 million offer accepted for the Ivorian's services, and that his current club Lille will allow him to move on.

However, the 27-year-old is keen to be played in his favoured position as a striker, and Allardyce has conceded that this could prove to be a problem.

"His record at Chelsea, his goalscoring record in France and his age, is very appealing to us.

"But whether it comes off in terms of which position he wants to play could be the stumbling block," the Upton Park boss said.

On top of this potential issue is Kalou's reported disdain for another relocation. The forward, who hit a rich vein of form in Ligue 1 last year after a faltering start to his career at Lille, is contracted until 2016, and is under no obligation to depart this summer.

According to French newspaper L'Equipe, Kalou is content to remain where he is, and reports suggest he has already turned down offers from West Brom and Trabzonspor, the former made more significant due to the possibility of linking up with old Chelsea team-mate Nicolas Anelka. 

It is thought that Valencia are also interested in the prospect of Kalou, as they have confirmed the departure of Roberto Soldado to West Ham's rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
