Lille have rejected a bid from Arsenal for striker Salomon Kalou, according to reports.
The Gunners had been linked to the former Chelsea forward as backup if their approach for Julian Draxler fell through.
Sky Sports News says that the Ligue 1 side have refused to let the Ivorian leave the club, claiming that they will not be able to find a replacement before the window closes.
The 28-year-old has scored seven goals for the club in the league this season.
