Arsenal is not looking to
sign former Chelsea hit man Didier Drogba, 34, now with Chinese Super League side
Shanghai Shenhua. So says Gunners manager Arsene Wenger.
He just left England
In the very recent past, reports have had it that Shenhua has had power strugglers and high earners; Drogba being one and his former Chelsea strike partner Nicholas Anelka the other, would be forced out of the club
-At the moment no. In my opinion he is not free. He has just left England, Wenger said in a quote carried on Eurosport
-I don't know about the situation because he came out with a completely different statement.
-You hear he might go to Real Madrid - but then he says 'I am staying in China'. Is it just because he wants to be paid off? I don't know.
In his time at Chelsea, Drogba had the knack to score against Arsenal at will; he did this 13 times in as many games.
Arsenal has a number of strikers at its disposal; Moroccan Marouane Chamakh, Cote d’Ivoire Gervinho, Lucas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
