Arsenal have made an enquiry to Chelsea about signing out of favour forward, Saloman Kalou.

wearethenorthbank.com understands that Arsenal have made initial contact with Chelsea about the availability of the Ivory Coast international.

Chelsea are looking to offload Kalou, who has made just four Premier League appearances under Andre Villas-Boas, and Arsenal are weighing up a bid of around £3m.

Kalou is out of contract in the summer and wants a £90k per week deal to stay at Stamford Bridge. With Chelsea reluctant to meet those terms, they are willing to sell now with Arsenal looking to steal a march on other interested clubs, including Liverpool.

The 26-year-old is currently in Dubai with the Ivory Coast, preparing for the forthcoming African Cup of Nations.
