French newspapers claim Juventus are on the verge of signing Didier Drogba from Galatasaray.
According to L’Equipe, a deal has practically been done and is down only to details, as his current contract expires on June 30.
It would enable the Bianconeri to have a striker with Champions League experience and who can provide a high-quality back-up to Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.
However, the Italian papers maintain Antonio Conte is unconvinced due to 36-year-old Drogba’s age and would prefer to wait for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.
Drogba joined Galatasaray in January 2013, having played for Le Mans, Guingamp, Marseille, Chelsea and Shanghai Shenhua.
