West Ham fans reacted to reported approach for Salomon Kalou

West Ham have reportedly made an approach for attacker Salomon Kalou at German top-flight outfit Hertha Berlin – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are furious by claiming that he would be a poor signing for them.

According to German publication Kicker, the Hammers have sent an enquiry to Hertha asking about the 34-year-old.

The Ivory Coast forward has scored two goals in just seven appearances this season across all competition and is on the fringes of the Bundesliga side’s squad.

He managed 20 goals in the previous two seasons at Hertha, but turns 35 in August and appears to be edging toward the latter stages of his career.

Kalou previously spent six years in England with Chelsea, where won the Premier League, Champions League, League Cup, two Super Cups and four FA Cups.

The African forward is a versatile star that can play as a winger or a central striker and he scored 60 goals in 254 games for Chelsea between 2006-2012.

A selection of West Ham supporters are convinced that Kalou is well past his peak and that he would be a “pointless” addition this month.

David Moyes’ team sit just above the relegation places of the Premier League on goal difference and have until Friday’s deadline to bring in any new recruits to improve the squad.

Here are some West Ham fans on the Kalou speculation:
