Former Chelsea forward Salomon Kalou is refusing to rule out the possibility of a return to the Premier League, and revealed that he had several offers from English clubs - amid reported interest from Arsenal - during the summer, reports talkSPORT.

The 28-year-old Ivory Coast international ended his six-year stay in west London when he signed for Ligue 1 outfit Lille in the summer of 2012.

Kalou enjoyed an impressive debut season in France, scoring 14 goals in 28 league matches last term, which prompted admiring glances from a number of potential suitors.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of the African, and was previously linked with a loan move for Kalou when he was out-of-favour at Chelsea.

However, a temporary transfer from Stamford Bridge to the Emirates Stadium never materialised, allowing the player to embark on a new adventure with Lille.

And, although Kalou is happy in his new surroundings at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, he intimated that he would be open to a move back to the Premier League in the future.

"Who knows? I may come back to England," he told French publication Le Parisien. "Several clubs already contacted me this summer. At the moment, I am pleased at Lille."
