Milan are hoping to lure Kalou to Serie A this summer…
According to reports in Talksport, Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou is a transfer target for Italian giants Milan. The Ivorian is out of contract this summer and with talks of an extension seemingly not in the offing, a free transfer to Milan could materialize.
Kalou was nothing more than fringe player at the start of the season at Stamford Bridge. However, following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo has given the Ivorian a new lease of life and the 26-year old has been an important factor in Chelsea’s late revival.
Despite his performances, Kalou’s future, however, still hangs in the balance mainly due to the managerial uncertainty at Chelsea.
Roberto Di Matteo has fared admirably and if Chelsea do go on to win the Champions League, then he could well be given the job permanently. If that does transpire, then Kalou could end up staying put.
However, there has also been talk of a more high profile manager coming in the summer and with massive investment expected, Kalou could well be allowed to leave.
Although Besiktas have also been touted to be interested in the player, Milan are certainly the more likely of the two clubs to seal the deal, given their stature in Europe.
