Kalou, who is out of contract this summer and spent three years with Feyenoord before joining Chelsea, is expected to have a role to play against Bayern Munich this weekend, having been involved more regular under interim boss Roberto Di Matteo than he was when Andre Villas-Boas was in charge.

The attacker told the Sun: "Feyenoord can call me any time - they are the first name on my list. Let me win the Champions League final and then I will think about Feyenoord. Yes, I'm serious!"

Arsenal and Tottenham have also been linked with a move for the Ivory Coast international, with Arsene Wenger in particular known to be an admirer. Kalou has made 12 Premier League appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring once.
