Rumours continue to circulate that Didier Drogba could be set for a return to Europe, with Juventus the latest club to reportedly show an interest in the Ivorian.

It’s no secret that the Old Lady are in the market for a centre forward: the Italians were linked with moves for a host of top strikers over the summer, including Robin van Persie, Luis Suarez, Fernando Llorente and Dimitar Berbatov but ended-up with Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner on loan.

It is understood the Serie A giants believe that Drogba can be lured back to Europe if they reach the last 16 of the Champions League.

The 34-year-old, who was voted Chelsea’s greatest ever player, has scored 11 goals in 16 games since joining Chinese SuperLeague club Shanghai Shenhua but there have been reports that he is unsettled in the Far East, with rumours last month claiming that Drogba may not be paid his £250,000 wage after financial difficulties at boardroom level.

Clearly, Drogba would have to take a significant pay drop if he was to make the move to Turin but the lure of winning consecutive Champions League titles may prove too hard to resist.
