AC Milan want Chelsea striker Didier Drogba on loan
Tuesday 15 November 2011
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has revealed his club's interest in Chelsea strikers Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba.
The Italian champions are looking to reinforce their attacking line in the winter transfer market with Antonio Cassano ruled out indefinitely after undergoing a heart procedure earlier this month.
Anelka and Drogba are both in the final year of their contracts with Chelsea and have been linked with a move to the San Siro outfit in January.
"If Cassano returns to play in a short space of time then we will not bring a reinforcement," Galliani said as reported in Gazzetta dello Sport. "We will evaluate what to do further on.
"Perhaps only one (striker) will arrive in spring.
"Anelka? He continues to score, we shall see. He is an important player but I was in love with Drogba when he played at Marseille."
