Galatasaray table swap offer to Chelsea for Drogba

Galatasaray are making a swap offer for Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

The Daily Mail says Galatasaray will allow Arda Turan to join Chelsea for £7million plus Drogba.

With Stamford Bridge target Turan rated at around £18m, the deal values Drogba at just £11m - a meagre offer likely to be rebuffed by Chelsea.

Left winger Turan, 24, is a Liverpool fan and has been linked with the Merseyside club and Tottenham in the past but Chelsea are very keen following the recommendation of his international coach, Turkey boss Guus Hiddink.

New Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas could be persuaded to let Drogba, 33, leave for the right price, and the Ivory Coast international will wait to see if Chelsea splash out on another forward before making a decision on his future.
