Brazilian club confirm they are close to signing former Chelsea player

Brazilian club Botafogo have confirmed they are close to signing former Chelsea star Salomon Kalou.

The Ivorian is a free agent after his contract with Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin expired last month.

The 34 year old forward is expected to sign an 18 month contract with the Brazilian club.

“He already has the pre-contract, but he asked for just one more detail in the contract that was sent to him,” Botafogo official Carlos Augusto Montenegro told SporTV.

“I think it’s okay. And if no presidential candidate for Vasco appears at his house, I think that maybe he will come.”
