On Monday, Juventus's club president Beppe Marotta has confirmed that he has made an enquiry as to the availability of Shanghai Shenhua striker, Didier Drogba.
Marotta told calciomercatto.com that they are always making enquiries and they have made one about Drogba. The Ivory Coast International has been considering his future at the Chinese club after complications surrounding the clubs ownership and his contract.
The former Chelsea hero has re-iterated his refusal to play for another club in the Premier League out of respect for his former employers, so a move to Serie A seems very likely. Drogba had been training with Chelsea recently ahead of the African Nations Cup competition that begins at the end of January.
Juventus want to add firepower up top and see Drogba as the ideal physical body to bring in a real presence to their attacking options. With current striker Nicklas Bendtner sidelined with injury problems, Drogba is a ready made replacement.
