Goodness me, this is a turn up for the proverbial books. Despite Chelsea looking in better shape than their London rivals, this player has revealed that he quite fancies wearing the red shirt of the Gunners at some stage in his career, this won’t exactly endear him to supporters!
The Daily Mail reports that Salomon Kalou is making envious glances at Arsenal right now, despite the fact that they are having a rough time of it in the Premier League. Three consecutive goalless draws in the league are hardly the stuff that dreams are made of, yet the Ivorian wants to hook up with his mates and work for Arsene Wenger.
‘Every single player in the world dreams of playing for Arsene Wenger,’ Kalou told setanta.com.
‘I am still under contract with Chelsea, but of course I have plenty of friends who play for Arsenal: Kolo Toure, Emmanuel Eboue and Emmanuel Adebayor.
‘They are achieving huge things at Arsenal and watching them play is just beautiful.’
Achieving huge things? Arsenal will be lucky to land a place in next season’s Champions League, with the FA Cup looking like the only piece of silverware that the Gunners might win! Chelsea look revitalised under Guus Hiddink, although Kalou seems to give the impression that he’s nearing the Stamford Bridge exit door. Do Blues supporters want to keep him? Do Gunners fans want to sign him?!
