Published Add your comment

Arsenal have been rivalled by Italian outfit Roma in the race to sign Lille forward  Salomon Kalou, reports talkSPORT.

The ex-Chelsea ace, can leave the French outfit for just £2.5 million, and could now be heading back to the Premier League or to Serie A. 

Arsenal are currently light up top with outcast Nicklas Bendtner the only real threat to Olivier Giroud in the Gunners' attack. 

And now Arsene Wenger looks ready to bring the Ivory Coast forward to the Emirates to boost his options in attack. 

However, the Arsenal boss will have to see off the challenge of Roma as they look to bring the ex-Blues ace to Italy. 

Arsene Wenger is currently over relying on Frenchman Olivier Giroud and the Arsenal manager will hope the potential signing of Kalou can relieve some of the pressure from the striker. 

The Gunners may now go head-to-head with Roma for the signing of Kalou once the transfer market reopens in January.
