Lille attacker Salomon Kalou has welcomed interest from Liverpool and West Ham United.

The former Chelsea man is being linked with a return to England.

"I am flattered with all teams linked with me in England," said Kalou, who is currently on international duty with the Ivory Coast ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations later this month.

"It means I am not a bad player as some people think. Teams such as Liverpool, West Ham, are very good teams."
