Tottenham are frontrunners to sign Didier Drogba after the Chelsea striker snubbed a transfer to AC Milan, it has been claimed.

According to talkSPORT, the north London club are in 'pole position' to land the 33-year-old after he opted not to move to the San Siro.

Drogba has scored 145 times in 306 games for Chelsea but his future at Stamford Bridge is reportedly hanging in the balance after the January signing of Fernando Torres from Liverpool.

The acquisition of a proven goalscorer is known to be a summer priority for Tottenham and bringing Drobga to White Hart Lane would certainly represent quite a coup.

However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has allegedly told Harry Redknapp he must trim his squad before any significant investment can be made, and any one of Jermain Defoe, Roman Pavlyuchenko or Peter Crouch has been tipped to leave the club.


Along with Drogba, Spurs are also reportedly chasing Espanyol hotshot Pablo Osvaldo and Manchester United flop Diego Forlan in a bid to sign a quality striker during the transfer window.

Meanwhile, Spurs have today confirmed their first recruitment of the summer after Brad Friedel moved to White Hart Lane on a two-year deal.
