Kalou rejected Arsenal loan move

Salomon Kalou has revealed that he turned down the chance to sign for Arsenal during the January transfer window, the Daily Star understands.

The Ivory Coast man was one of a number of players linked with a move to the Emirates earlier in the year, though the Gunners only managed to secure a loan deal for midfielder Kim Kallstrom, who finally made it into Arsene Wenger’s match-day squad at the weekend but is yet to play.

Kalou moved to Ligue 1 side Lille in the summer of 2012, and has scored 24 goals in 58 league appearances for the club.

His former employees Chelsea thumped Arsenal 6-0 on Saturday lunchtime to put a huge dent in their hopes of clinching a first Premier League title in a decade.

They will hope to bounce straight back with victory over Swansea City tomorrow evening, which can be backed at a price of 9/20.
