Lille forward Salomon Kalou has admitted that he would welcome the opportunity to return to the English Premier League.
The Ivory Coast international left Chelsea to join Lille on a free transfer last summer, and he has had a promising start to his career in France.
Kalou, 27, has been linked with a move to Arsenal recently, and he admits he wouldn’t mind returning to the Premiership.
“I’d love to go back to England. I spent six seasons there and I am crazy about the Premier League,” Kalou was quoted as saying in The Sun.
“Players’ careers change so quickly — you never know what will happen tomorrow.”
Kalou began his professional career at Excelsior, but it was at Feyenoord that he made a name for himself.
The Ivorian made a switch to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2006 and went on to score 37 goals in 155 Premier League appearances despite never establishing himself as a first team regular at Chelsea.
This term Kalou has scored 8 goals in 22 Ligue 1 matches for Lille, while netting once in seven Champions League fixtures.
