West Ham United have opened talks with Lille attacker Salomon Kalou.
Hammers boss Sam Allardyce admits he faces a fight to clinch his signature.
Allardyce said: âThe chairman is speaking with the playerâs agent. We understand he wants to come back and play in England and we are having a look at it.
âHis record at Chelsea, his scoring record in France and his age is very appealing. But which position he wants to play could be a stumbling block.â
