Arsenal could make a move to bring Salomon Kalou back to the Premier League, according to the Daily Mail.

Kalou spent six seasons at Chelsea before signing for Lille in 2012, but the Ivorian has been linked with a transfer to the likes of West Ham and West Brom in recent weeks as he looks destined to depart the Ligue 1 side.

Now Arsenal are set to be the latest to show an interest in Kalou, with the Daily Mail reporting that talks have been held between the two clubs.

A fee of £2.6 million may seal the deal, with Kalou potentially earning £60,000-a-week. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has yet to spend money during the summer transfer window, but has made two signings, with young Frenchman Yaya Sanogo coming on a free and Mathieu Flamini re-signing for the club after being out of contract following his exit from AC Milan.
