Malouda: Chelsea, Liverpool in contact

Olympique Lyon winger Florent Malouda has again declared he wants a move to the Premiership.

"There has been no offer but it's true there has been direct contact," Malouda told L'Equipe newspaper.

"Liverpool and Chelsea have shown their interest. I don't know how it's going to end but in my head I'm going to leave (Lyon)."

The former Chateauroux and Guingamp player, who this week earned his 29th cap for France in a 1-0 win over Georgia, admits both clubs offer a mouth-watering prospect.

"At Chelsea there is Didier Drogba, as well as everybody else," he continued. "But then at Liverpool, they have such a good coach and the team has played in two Champions League finals in three years.

"The most important thing for me will be the desire shown by the club. To go and play abroad, you really need to be wanted."
