Liverpool fans are looking dubious here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim that the Reds are considering a move for Lille forward Salomon Kalou.
As one of our punters notes, Brendan Rodgers still has a fair bit of money to spend this summer but we are not totally convinced that Kalou is the man he should be targeting.
After seeing Luis Suarez depart for Barcelona, Reds fans in the tavern still managed to remain upbeat but signing former Chelsea man Kalou may not exactly keep smiles on their faces.
We were expecting a far bigger name to come in but after a plea from Kalou asking for a return to the Premier League, it has been claimed that Brendan Rodgers’ head has been turned by the versatile attacker who netted 16 goals last season in Ligue 1.
Kalou is also being considered as an option by Tottenham Hotspur but the chance of Champions League football with Liverpool may be too strong a lure.
Liverpool fans. Would you see a move for Kalou as a good thing or is it making a massive step backwards after so much progress last season? Let us know your thoughts below.
