Chelsea striker Didier Drogba could complete a move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer, according to The Evening Standard.

Harry Redknapp has put the Ivorian at the top of his transfer wish list, and after ample speculation linking the forward away from Stamford Bridge, it appears the English manager may get his man at last.

Drogba's opportunities at Chelsea have been limited since the signing of Fernando Torres, and after Torres was selected ahead of the 33-year-old in The Blues' crunch Champions League quarter-final with Manchester United, rumours have swelled of a move away, with Tottenham reportedly leading the race.

 

Redknapp is looking to build a squad capable of challenging for the Barclays Premier League title and for qualification to the Champions League.

The former Marseille player would give Tottenham some much needed experience, while Chelsea may need to offload the forward to balance their books ahead of FIFA's new financial regulations.

Both Tottenham and Chelsea are after Sergio Aguero to add to their attacking line-up, and a deal between the two clubs over Drogba may decide where the future of the Argentine lies.
