Blues African striker deal is still possible - reports

Didier Drogba will become the subject of a late summer transfer bid from AC Milan according to  - who say the Serie A outfit are watching the Chelsea striker's situation with great interest.

The 33-year-old Ivory Coast international's future has been regularly called into question, stemming from the January arrival of £50million record signing Fernando Torres.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas has made his intentions clear to give opportunities to all of his Chelsea strikers, and has stayed true to his word in pre-season, regularly rotating his squad in the warm-up schedule.

The return of Daniel Sturridge to Stamford Bridge after a successful loan spell at Bolton Wanderers, twinned with the imminent arrival of Romelu Lukaku means Drogba, along with Torres and Nicolas Anelka will have increased competition for a place in the Chelsea starting line-up.

Milan officials hope that will play into their hands, and remain quietly confident of bringing Drogba to the San Siro to link up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic who, according to Corriere dello Sport would compliment each other perfectly.

Reports emanating from west London indicate that Drogba is in fact in talks with Chelsea over a new contract so it is unclear at this stage what his attitude is towards a potential move to Italy, providing Milan can afford the sort of fee he is likely to command.
