Juventus fear being crowded out in their bid for Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

While Juve GM Beppe Marotta has denied contact with Drogba's camp, Tuttosport says they're actively pushing to sign the Shanghai Shenhua striker.

Drogba was reported to be in Turin over the weekend house-hunting.

But Juve directors fear his asking price is going up as AC Milan and Spartak Moscow also show their hand in the battle for the Ivorian's services.
