West Ham United are set to make a surprise move to land Chelsea forward Salomon Kalou.


The report in the Daily Mail suggests Hammers boss Sam Allardyce believes he can land the Stamford Bridge substitute on loan until the end of the season.


Kalou has been used sparingly since Andre Villas-Boas became Blues manager and the reports claims they would not be unwilling to sell.


The interest from the Hammers comes after a £6 million bid to bring Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic to Upton Park was turned down, says the article.


It is an ambitious move for a player who is more used to Champions League than Championship and West Ham may struggle to convince him to drop down a league.


The Mail also says that Allardyce made an enquiry regarding the availability of Florent Malouda, but was told he would be staying at Stamford Bridge.


Arsenal were also credited with an interest in the Ivory Coast international, who is currently away on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.


The 26-year-old has been used less and less but Chelsea still, apparently, are unwilling to let him go to a rival and would prefer a move abroad.
