The Mirror is reporting that Liverpool are set to make a £6million bid in January for out of favour Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou.
The 26-year-old Ivory Coast international has been at Chelsea since 2006 when he joined from Dutch side Feyenoord but now he has gone down the pecking order at Chelsea following the arrival of their new manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Kalou is in the final year of his Chelsea deal and it does not look like he will be offered a new deal or that he would want one as he seeks to play more regular first team football, thus Chelsea could be ready to sell him in the January transfer window rather than letting him go for free in the summer.
I am not a huge fan of Kalou but he would give us different options in the Liverpool side if he joined us. For me, he is a player in the Yossi Benayoun mould and given that we tried to sign Benayoun again, Dalglish make be looking for a similar type of player who is able to play out wide, cut-in and has an eye for goal which is what Kalou is capable of.
It is also being reported that Arsenal are after Kalou’s signature as Wenger is an admirer of the player. Do you think Kalou would be a good signing for Liverpool?
