Juventus have joined the battle for departing Chelsea striker Didier Drogba. The striker, who will quit the Stamford Bridge club when his contract expires next month, has emerged as a target for the Italian giants.

The Serie A champions are prepared to offer Drogba £80,000 a week and a signing bonus of £10million, according to The Sun.

Nicolas Anelka's Shanghai Shenhua remain favourites to sign the 34-year-old and Juventus know they cannot match the Chinese club's spending power.
