Kalou keen on Liverpool

Salomon Kalou is willing to consider a transfer to Liverpool and is keen to talk to the club although there has been no official offer, his agent has revealed.

The Reds are planning to sign new players for the coming season after new man at the helm Brendan Rodgers recently succeeded Kenny Dalglish.

Rodgers is familiar with Kalou after the pair worked together at Chelsea and the Liverpool boss has always admired the Ivory Coast star, suggesting an official bid could soon be tabled.

The versatile attacker's contract with the Blues ended recently, opening the door for Newcastle and Schalke to express their interest in a possible signing.

However, Kalou's representative, Rodger Linse, has since admitted anything is possible and that a move to Anfield could also be on the cards.

"There are conversations going on, and of course when that is happening then you must be careful what you say," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"Liverpool can speak for themselves, and Schalke can speak for themselves. That is fine.

"Of course Liverpool is a very big club, in terms of support and in terms of history.

"It is definitely positive to hear that a big club like them are showing an interest in Salomon, though it is too early to say anything definitive at this stage."

Linse added: "He has been very happy at Chelsea and he is a player with ambition who has managed to satisfy a lot of those ambitions over the last few years.

"He never quite made it to be a guaranteed starter with Chelsea, but his statistics were always good, and he won lots of trophies there.

"In many ways it will be difficult to find a better place to be, but he is open-minded, and would be happy to continue in England if the right club comes in."
