There have been many Arsenal transfer rumours flying about but the early links with Salomon Kalou seemed to have been forgotten about. The Chelsea striker has been in great form for the Blues since Roberto Di Matteo was appointed manager and the Ivorian international has been getting a regular run in the first-team.
Everyone has been discussing whether Didier Drogba will be signing a new contract at Stamgford Bridge but (like Van Persie and Walcott at Arsenal) everyone seems to forget that Kalou is also out of contract this summer, meaning he can leave as a free agent this summer if he wants.
But today, Talksport seems to have remembered this fact and they report that the tall winger is still refusing to discuss a new contract until the end of the season, which means after the Champions League Final on May 19th.
Salomon was asked about his future again, and Talksport quote him as saying: “I’m one step away from winning the Champions League. After that I can decide on my future. I just want to win the Champions League.”
They then go on to say that, if Chelsea manage to beat Bayern Munich, Kalou will have won every trophy possible with Chelsea, and think he is more likely to leave once he has the full set of medals…..
Wenger has previously admitted that he tried to buy Kalou, so will Wenger consider bringing him to Arsenal on a freebie?
