Tottenham set for talks with Arsenal's striker target

Published Add your comment

Tottenham are set for talks with former Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou, reports the Daily Mail. 

The 28-year-old has been in fine form in Ligue 1 for Lille this season and now appears ready to make a return to the Premier League. 

Spurs seem desperate to improve their forward ranks in this transfer window having already sold Jermain Defoe, who will join Major League Soccer side Toronto on February 28

It had appeared that the striker, who has also been linked with a move to Arsenal, was off limits for the London clubs after club president Michel Seydoux suggested last week that he would only consider parting ways with the star for £87 million

However it now appears that the White Hart Lane outfit could get their man for a much lower price of £2.6m which will come as a blow to the Gunners.

It's expected that Tottenham will hold talks with the forward today as Tim Sherwood looks to make his fist signing as manager of the club.

Arsenal and Tottenham's immediate attention will turn to this weekend's Premier League round of fixtures. 

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal side host strugglers Fulham at the Emirates, meanwhile Tottenham travel to the Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea City.
