Chelsea are weighing up a shock summer move for Yaya Toure and hope that the Manchester City midfielder's close relationship with compatriot Didier Drogba will help convince him to sign on at Stamford Bridge.

According to The Express, Blues boss Jose Mourinho believes the 32-year-old still has the appetite to play in the Premier League and is ready to meet the Citizens' £10 million asking price for the £220,000-a-week star.

Toure's prospective switch to west London is unlikely to be welcomed by Etihad Stadium officials, who would prefer to sell to one of his foreign suitors rather than risk strengthening a domestic rival.

Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini has been heavily linked with a move for the former Barcelona man, who was first brought to England in a £24 million deal in 2010 when the Italian tactician was in charge at Manchester City.

However, the Serie 'A' giants are not the only top European club keen on securing Toure's signature, with Champions League finalists Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain also monitoring developments closely.

Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk recently stated he was 90 per cent certain that his client would leave City at the end of the season, but at this stage his next destination remains anyone's guess in the weeks leading up to the summer transfer window.
