Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is closing in on a move to Juventus, according to reports in the Italian media.
The 36-year-old, who scored 100 Premier League goals in 226 appearances for the Blues between 2004 and 2012, is a free agent after leaving Turkish side Galatasaray.
Drogba believes he is still more than capable of playing at the top level of European football, and is desperate to be a part of the Champions League next season.

If he completes his proposed move to Turin, he will joined a packed Juventus strike-force that already contains Carlos Tevez, Sebastian Giovinco, Fernando Llorente and Fabio Quagliarella.
Real Madrid’s young forward Alvaro Morata has also been heavily linked with a move to the club, with Juve’ expected to beat off competition from Arsenal and Tottenham to sign the 21-year-old in the coming days.
