Nicolas Anelka hopes former Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba can join him at Shanghai Shenhua.

Anelka left Chelsea for Shanghai Shenhua in January, and has revealed he has spoken to his former Blues team-mate about a reunion in the Far East.

He said: "If I could choose any of my former teammates to join me at Shenhua, it would be Didier.

"It's difficult for me to say much at this time, but I speak with him on a regular basis and I expect him to come to Shanghai. When I left Chelsea, I told him we'd play together again soon."
