Juventus have reportedly joined Arsenal in pursuit of Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou.

The Ivorian hitman is growing increasingly frustrated at his limited opportunities at Stamford Bridge and is said to be considering leaving west London in order to further his career.

It was reported on Monday that Arsenal are monitoring Kalou as Arsene Wenger peruses the market for back-up for Gunners captain Robin van Persie.

And now, according to talkSPORT, Juve are also considering a move for the 26-year-old when the transfer window opens in January.

Kalou has scored in his last three appearances for Chelsea, but has never been a guaranteed starter during his five year spell with the club.

Saturday's appearance from the bench was Kalou's 100th as a substitute since he joined Chelsea from Feyenoord, and he has recently expressed his desire to play more regularly.

And, it would appear, Juve and Arsenal would be willing to offer him the chance to do so.
