Please let it all be just a bad dream!
ARSENAL are on the verge of signing Salomon Kalou from Chelsea.
The Gunners have offered £6million for the 23-year-old Ivory Coast striker – but the Blues are insisting on £8m.
Emirates boss Arsene Wenger is ready to double his weekly wage to £60,000 and has offered him a five-year contract. Kalou rocked Chelsea in February when he said it would be an honour to play for Wenger.
Kalou said: “He is a very great coach and I know that every single player in the world dreams of playing for him.
“I have a lot of respect for him, he is one of the best coaches in the world.
“Arsenal are achieving huge things and watching them play is beautiful.” (The Sun)
Why oh why would Arsene consider this move? The Chelsea man is a decent utility player who occasionally scores important goals but I see no reason why we should think that Kalou offers anything more than what we already have plenty of in our squad.
Even if Carlo Ancelotti was ready to let him join an arch-rival that in itself would in essence display just how little regard the west London outfit has for the player and for that alone it’s worth steering well clear!
