Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is open to the idea of a January switch to Juventus, according to Italian newspaper Tuttosport.
Juventus have been desperate to land a new striker since the end of last season, and their summer-long search for a new attacker proved to be largely fruitless - they only managed to sign Arsenal outcast Nicklas Bendtner on loan.
Drogba, whose last act in a Chelsea shirt clinched the Blues' maiden Champions League triumph, only joined Shanghai Shenhua in June but his future at the Chinese club is already in doubt over concerns about their finances.
And according to Tuttosport, the 34-year-old has given Juve the green light to make a move for his services.
However, Shanghai will reportedly demand £8m for the Ivorian, but the Serie A side are currently only open to offering £4m and add-ons.
Should the two clubs reach an agreement, Drogba is expected to discuss terms with Juventus over an 18-month deal.
