Chelsea Will Need To Give Didier Drogba Plus £7m To Land Turkey Target

Turk Telekom Arena star could be on his way to Stamford Bridge.

Galatasaray are demanding Chelsea pay £7million plus striker Didier Drogba if they want to sign midfielder Arda Turan.

The Turkish and English giants have been chasing each other’s players for some time now and it appears a compromise is in reach.

Turan, 24, is Galatasaray’s most dangerous player and he was expected to be Chelsea’s main transfer target if Guus Hiddink became Chelsea manager.

The Turks now hope they still hold a desire to sign the winger in order for them to sign Drogba, who will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge by new boss Andre Villas-Boas.

Tottenham Hotspur and Marseille are both after the Ivory Coast international but will struggle to match his wage demands, according to the Daily Express.

The clear-out of playing staff will begin very soon, with Nicolas Anelka and Salomon Kalou both sweating over their Blues futures.

Another Turkish side, Besiktas, have already tabled a £6m offer for full-back Jose Bosingwa.

The re-structuring off the field has already started with first-team coach Paul Clement, club doctor Bryan English and fitness coach Glenn Driscoll all being told their contracts will be terminated.

Villas-Boas is bringing in his own staff from his former club Porto in the shape of fitness guru Jose Maria Rocha and chief scout Daniel Sousa.

Michael Emenalo will remain on the coaching staff after being recommended by owner Roman Abramovich.
