Chelsea are ready to spend big for Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Mirror says Didier Drogba will leave Chelsea this summer and Arsenal’s Adebayor is favourite to replace him.

Carlo Ancelotti, who has given a verbal undertaking to Roman Abramovich that he will leave AC Milan for Chelsea, has named Adebayor as the man he wants to replace Drogba.

Adebayor’s future at Arsenal has been clouded in doubt for over a year and his recent performances in the Champions League semi-final games with Manchester United infuriated Gunners fans.

Drogba will pay the price for his outrageous Champions League antics and Chelsea will want around £10million for the African, even though he has just 12 months left on his contract.
