Salomon Kalou is considering a return to England with Lille ready to sell in January.

The 27-year-old joined for free from Chelsea in the summer as Lille beat West Ham, QPR and Everton, among others, in the race to win his signature.

Those clubs could be tempted to take a look at Kalou again come January, but his high wages could prove prohibitive.

Lille, who came third in Ligue 1 in 2011/12 and won the double in 2010/11, have endured a tough campaignthis season, and are currently languishing in 11th place, nine points off the leaders, Paris Saint-Germain.

Salomon Kalou’s summer move to Lille has not panned out quite as he would have hoped. The Ivory Coast international has managed just three goals in 17 matches and seen his side struggle for form, due chiefly to the fact that the Ligue 1 side have seen almost all their top talents leave the club following their title success two seasons ago.

The former Chelsea man saw his Blues contract come to an end and left Stamford Bridge in the summer, along with Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba, but perhaps the former Feyenoord man would be keen on another chance to impress in the English top tier.

The adaptable forward rarely established himself in the Chelsea starting eleven for long periods but still racked up 60 goals in the 254 appearances he made for Chelsea during his six years at the West London club.

A move to Everton, QPR or West Ham may tempt Kalou and of the the trio it would appear that the relegation threatened Loftus Road side may be the side most in need of the service that Kalou could provide.
