SCHALKE boss Huub Stevens claims the German club are battling with Liverpool for the signature of Chelsea’s Salomon Kalou.
The 26-year-old Ivory Coast international will leave Stamford Bridge on a free transfer this summer as his contract expires on July 1 and he is currently considering his options.
Stevens is keen to lure him to the Bundesliga outfit but says Kalou is also wanted at Anfield.
“Kalou is a Bosman player,” he said.
“It’s obvious – there are many other clubs keen on him. Liverpool for example. But I know for sure he wants to move away from England. This might be our chance.”
