Kalou has been a hit for French club Lille since signing on as a free transfer last year, scoring ten goals for the Ligue 1 side, but the Ivory Coast international has hinted a return to England is in his future.

“I’d love to go back to England,” Kalou told The Sun. “I spent six seasons there and I am crazy about the Premier League.

“Players’ careers change so quickly - you never know what will happen tomorrow.”

Kalou, 27, won the Premier League, Champions League and four FA Cups during his time with Chelsea.
