FC Copenhagen’s rising star Kenneth Zohore has revealed how an unofficial enquiry was made after his side’s recent Champions League encounter with Chelsea.
According to SkySports.com, Blues striker Didier Drogba is said to have approached the 17-year-old striker after their side’s recent European match-up.
"I have just talked to him and will call him when I get back home. We will just talk in peace and quiet with each other." Zohore told Politiken.
"I don't know what he wanted, he asked me when I came to FC Copenhagen and I told him that I have been there for a long time."
The young Dane has previously been on trial at Chelsea, and is a confirmed Blues fan, which could play into the hands of Carlo Ancelotti should he decide to proceed with negotiations in the summer.
Despite his tender years, Zohore is a first team regular for Copenhagen and has been likened in his style of play to another Chelsea target – Roman Lukaku of Anderlecht.
Both players have an abundance of potential, which has proven to be the main protagonist behind Chelsea’s expressed interest.
Blues owner Roman Abramovich has called for Ancelotti’s squad to be ‘freshened up’ with new faces, and has made a point of trying to recruit some of the brightest young talent Europe has to offer.
Zohore took the opportunity to showcase his credentials in the recent double-header, with his finest performance coming in Wednesday’s last-16 second leg at Stamford Bridge.
Drogba’s approach, although unofficial at this stage, could prove to be the spark in another of Chelsea’s summer transfer exploits.
