'Torres threat' leads Milan to Chelsea striker - reports


Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is a target for AC Milan, according to The Daily Star.

Drogba is in the last year of his contract at The Blues and is expected to be offloaded given the recruitment in the last 12 months of both Fernando Torres and Romelu Lukaku.

Given that his place is no longer assured in the Chelsea side, Drogba could be willing to leave the club, with Milan keen to bring him in.

The Serie A giants have a history of bringing in older, established players, and former Milan and Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti believes the Ivorian would form a lethal partnership with fellow teammate Nicolas Anelka.

"They are serious, trustworthy and highly gifted," he said. "I could see them playing under Massimiliano Allegri (the AC Milan coach)."

With Milan interested in Drogba, they may opt to use Chelsea target Alexandre Pato as a makeweight in the deal.
