Chelsea ace of the pack for Spurs chief

The uncertain future of Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has alerted the attention of Tottenham Hotspur according to the Daily Star.

Drogba, 33, has been in and out of the Blues team since the arrival of £50million hit man Fernando Torres, which has added to speculation linking the Ivorian international with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has made no secret of his admiration for Drogba's talent, and says he would be keen to bring him to White Hart Lane if the opportunity presented itself.

"Drogba is still a fantastic player. Who knows, its up to Chelsea what they do but he's been a great player for them and a handful for any defence.

"He's a fantastic centre-forward with power, strength, he's got everything."


Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has tasked Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti with freshening up an ageing squad at Stamford Bridge by bringing in exciting, new up-and-coming talent.

The shift in focus could spell the end for a number of Chelsea stars who are approaching the end of their careers, with Drogba said to fall into that category.

But Redknapp refused to talk any further about a player who, as it stands is far from being a Tottenham player, until he or any Spurs officials are given the green light to open negotiations.

"He plays for Chelsea and until they decide otherwise, you can't speculate about his future. But he's a good player."

As Tottenham look to build on another impressive season that saw them reach the quarter-final's in their debut season in the Champions League.

Redknapp is keen to strengthen his squad and has targeted a striker in the 'world-class' bracket to add to his attacking options at White Hart Lane in the summer, and Drogba could be the man to fill that void.
