Milan Eye Didier Drogba

AC Milan coach Massimo Allegri has confirmed that the Rossoneri will try to sign African superstar, Didier Drogba.

Drogba is currently in South Africa, where he is captaining the Cote d’Ivoire’s ‘golden generation’ in what could be their last attempt to win the African Cup of Nations.

Reports have emerged that Drogba has already grown frustrated with the football life in China, where he moved after leaving Chelsea as a free agent at the end of last season.

Just seven months into his contract with Shanghai Shenhua, Drogba is rumoured to be itching to terminate his contract with the Chinese club.

And so sensing an opportunity to augment the frontline that has never quite recovered from the exit of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Allegri says he hopes Drogba can be brought to the San Siro.

But Allegri knows that crafting a deal to bring Drogba to the Serie A will not be easy, and may not be possible at all.

"Champions of his calibre are very welcome. [Milan’s vice-president Adriano] Galliani will know if the deal is feasible. I'm calm, the club is just thinking about what could help us out and what we could do about it,” Allegri said, regarding his interest in Drogba.

"A player like Drogba would certainly improve both the technical level and self-esteem of the team.

"We'll see what the club are able to do. Otherwise we'll carry on as we are, looking to have a good second half of the season because that is our objective.

"It will be difficult, though, because we still have to face some teams with a high level of technical quality."
