Arsenal make approach for Chelsea forward Kalou

Arsenal are set to make a shock approach for Ivorian forward Salomon Kalou.

The 26-year-old is out of contract at Chelsea in the summer and is free to speak with other clubs.

According to Talksport, Arsenal are leading the chase to sign Kalou and will make a bid for him this month.

New boss Andre Villas-Boas wants to make drastic changes to his Chelsea squad, with a number of high profile players set to leave in January or the summer.

Arsene Wenger could sign the Ivory Coast International for around ?3million but would need to match his wage demands of a reported ?90,000 per week.
