Arsenal linked with move for ex-Chelsea striker Drogba

Arsene Wenger wants to bolster his Arsenal strike force with a shock move for former Chelsea front man Didier Drogba, who left Stamford Bridge for Shanghai Shenhua this summer, the Daily Mail has reported.



The newspaper adds that Drogba’s move to China has turned sour after a boardroom struggle at the club left the status of Shenhua’s big-name, highly-paid front pair, Drogba and Nicolas Anelka, in doubt. Drogba said to be earning £200,000 per week.


If the Ivory Coast captain has to end his spell in Asia early then it is understood Arsenal are one of three teams in the running for his signature. The Gunners would face competition from Premier League rivals Liverpool and La Liga champions Real Madrid. A move to Spain would see Drogba re-united with his old Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.


Drogba spent eight years with Chelsea, moving to London from Marseille in 2004, and ended his time at the club by winning the Champions League against Bayern Munich in May. Drogba scored the goal that took the tie to extra-time, and then netted the winning penalty in the shootout with his last kick of a ball as a Chelsea player.
