Liverpool are being linked with a move for former Chelsea forward Salomon Kalou, according to reports.

Sky sources claim the Ivorian international is eyeing a return to the Premier League, just two years after leaving the Blues for pastures new in France, and could move for as little as £3million.

Blues record

Kalou signed for Chelsea in 2006, and went on to spend six-years at Stamford Bridge. He won one domestic title and four FA Cups whilst playing under a host of different managers - including Jose Mourinho.

He left the Blues in 2012, with the west London club deciding against renewing his contract at the end of that season. He went on to join Lille on a free transfer.

But, after two seasons in Ligue 1, he’s being linked with a return to England, with Liverpool among the contenders for his signature.

Liverpool keen

Brendan Rodgers is reported to be monitoring the player’s situation, as the Reds boss looks to continue strengthening his side at Anfield.

Liverpool have already signed four new players, with Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can and Lazar Markovic providing plenty of attacking options following the departure of Luis Suarez.

Kalou would be a much cheaper addition if he were to arrive on Merseyside, and could also give the Reds further depth ahead of a stint in the Champions League.

Spurs interest

Tottenham Hotspur are also credited with an interest, as Mauricio Pochettino looks to make his mark at White Hart Lane.

The Argentine has replaced Tim Sherwood at the Spurs helm, and will be eager to make his mark on the side in north London. Again, Kalou would add another option going forward.

Gunners out of race?

Great rivals Arsenal have been linked with a move for Kalou in the past, most notably in January, but the arrival of Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates Stadium means Arsene Wenger is unlikely to press ahead in pursuit of the player.
