Salomon Kalou: I Would Love To Play For Arsene Wenger's Arsenal
The Chelsea forward has admitted he would consider a move to the Emirates...
Chelsea's versatile forward Salomon Kalou has run the risk of upsetting the Blues faithful by revealing his admiration for Premier League rivals Arsenal and their manager, Arsene Wenger.
The 23-year-old confessed that he is a fan of the Gunners' style of play and said it was pleasing to hear that the north London club's boss tried to sign him last summer.
"Arsene Wenger said he thought of signing me? That’s an honour for me, an honour," Kalou told Setanta.
"He is a very great coach and I know that every single player in the world dreams of playing for Arsene Wenger. I have a lot of respect for him, he is one of the best coaches in the world so why not?
"I am still under contract with Chelsea, but of course I have plenty of friends who play for Arsenal - Kolo Toure, Emmanuel Eboue and Emmanuel Adebayor.
"They are achieving huge things at Arsenal and watching them play is just beautiful.
"You are never guaranteed to be in the Chelsea starting XI because every single player fights to earn his place, including me, and the coach is the one that has the final word.
"At the present time I’m happy at Chelsea and I hope that the things that I want to happen will happen. I will think of my future once the season is over."
