The race for Lille attacker Salomon Kalou is intensifying.

The Daily Star says Kalou is keen on a return to the Premier League, after spending the last two years in France with Lille.

Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in signing the 28-year-old, who scored 18 times last season helping Lille secure a place in the Champions League.

But according to reports in Italy, Roma boss Rudi Garcia is aiming to convince Kalou to turn his back on a return to England and join the Giallorossi.
