Former-Chelsea striker Didier Drogba could make a free switch to Italy with Inter Milan, according to the striker, but only if the club show interest in him.

The Ivorian international is currently a free agent after agreeing to leave Chelsea for a second time after his one-year deal expired.

The 37-year-old rejoined The Blues at the beginning of last season, and after winning the Capital One Cup and the Premier League, he then agreed with Jose Mourinho that he would leave in order to play regular first-team football before retiring.

Italy bound?

Drogba was used as backup to Diego Costa for the majority of last season, and with Radamel Falcao arriving at Stamford Bridge on a season-long loan, the Ivorian was told he wouldn't be needed, so he chose to leave.

After being released, the striker has been in talks with an MLS side, believed to be Chicago Fire, but in a recent interview, the Ivorian has revealed that a move to the Serie A could be an option for him.

Drogba worked with Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini during their brief time together in Turkey with Galatasaray, and the striker has admitted that he would link-up with the Italian once again if interest was there.

Drogba Discusses Inter

Drogba said: “Inter are a great club, and certainly if they were to contact me I’d gladly listen to their offer, but I’m currently in talks with an MLS club.

“Inter could be an option if they really are interested in me.”

If the 37-year-old was to move to the San Siro, it's believed he would once again be a backup option, this time to young starlet Mauro Icardi, but he has admitted that it would be a challenge he'd accept.

He added: “It would be absolutely no problem. In every team there are players you have to compete with for a place in the team.”

Throughout his career, Drogba has never played in Italy as he has spent most of his time in France, England or Turkey. 

He also had a brief spell in China.
