Chelsea's exit-bound frontman Salomon Kalou has recently attracted the interests of Merseyside heavy weight Liverpool who will look forward to bring the Ivory Coast international to Anfield to bolster the team's attacking line.
Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish, who is looking to add more firepower to his squad, is keen to bring in attacking options having witnessed Andy Carroll, who was acquired for £35 million, struggling to find his form and the team becoming heavily dependent on the services of Luis Suarez. Apart from Carroll and Suarez, Dalglish also has options in the form of Craig Bellamy and Dirk Kuyt who are both over 30 and mostly preferred in the wider areas.
Kalou, 26, feels that his time at the Stamford Bridge, after six seasons, is over and is looking for a new destination where he will be guaranteed more playtime. The former Feyenoord player has rarely been used by the club and feels that the time is right to for a move away from the London club.
Chelsea boss Andre-Villas Boas has sidelined the Ivorian since the inclusion of the likes of Fernando Torres, Didier Drogba, Daniel Sturridge, Juan Mata, Nicolas Anelka and even Romelu Lukaku flooded the team and is now, supposedly, the seventh choice striker for the team.
Kalou has bagged a total of 57 goals in as many as 135 starts for the Blues and has been tagged with a fee of around £6 million for his services. His contract expires at the end of the current season, according to a Caughtoffside report.
