Arsenal prepare sensational raid for Chelsea icon Drogba

Arsenal are lining up a sensational bid to bring Chelsea legend Didier Drogba back to London.

The Sun says the Gunners want to prise Drogba away from Shanghai Shenhua.

The Gunners are desperate to find a proven scorer to replace Robin van Persie.

And they have made enquiries with the Chinese club to see if there is a way of bringing the striker, 34, back to London.

The Gunners are aware of internal upheaval at Shanghai where Drogba and ex-Chelsea team-mate Nicolas Anelka have been caught up in a boardroom power struggle.

Drogba — believed to be on £200,000 a week — had been linked with a shock switch to Liverpool.

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho, who took the hitman to Stamford Bridge in 2004, also kept an eye on the Ivorian during the summer transfer window.
