Another top-level player struggling for playing time, Salomon Kalou was heavily linked with Liverpool in the summer, but a move never materialize. Now, talk about a potential Kalou-to-Liverpool transfer is picking up again, with Liverpool expected to try to spoil a proposed Arsenal move to sign the Ivorian.
Kalou has played just eight games for Chelsea this season after falling behind Didier Drogba, Romelu Lukaku, Juan Mata, Daniel Sturridge and Fernando Torres in the pecking order.
He is desperate for a move away from Stamford Bridge, and it is likely the Blues will be happy to oblige.
The 26-year-old is by no means the goalscorer that Liverpool need, but his versatility (he can play on the wing or behind the striker) would be a welcome addition at Anfield. A loan move would be relatively easy to wrap up, and it would give Liverpool flexibility in the summer on a decision over Kalou based on his performance.
