Juve plan new Drogba bid

Juventus are reportedly gearing up their third attempt to sign Didier Drogba in January, while Fernando Llorente also remains a target.

The Bianconeri failed to sign a ‘top player’ for their attack over the summer, missing out on the likes of Robin Van Persie, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic, instead plumping for Nicklas Bendtner.

It was reported over the last few days that two different bids were made for the Shanghai Shenhua star, offering a two-year contract worth €5m per season.

France Football published what they claim is the written proposal from Juventus to former Chelsea star Drogba.

Now there are suggestions in Tuttosport that the proposal for the 34-year-old will be renewed in January.

Juve were also in advanced talks with Athletic Bilbao for Llorente, but the Spanish side refused to release the striker despite the fact his contract expires in June 2013.

The Bianconeri are expected to make another offer in January, though they face competition from Liverpool.
