Salomon Kalou has declared he hopes to remain with Chelsea.

The attacker is eager to discuss a new contract.

The 26-year-old forward told L'Equipe: "I will be a free agent in June and I thought I would never play for Chelsea again.

"I thought the former coach would force me the same way as Alex and (Nicolas) Anelka, two players who brought a lot to the club but had to leave.

"Now, I hope to prolong my contract."
