Report: 'New' Roma Want Didier Drogba Or Emmanuel Adebayor

As a potential change in ownership looms, Roma have already identified some transfer targets and will look to add some more power in attack, according to Tuttosport.

The lack of a pure striker has often been a problem for the capital club over the past few seasons, but should they become owned by the Swiss-German conglomerate headed by Vinicio Fioranelli, they will look to sign either Chelsea hitman Didier Drogba or Arsenal bomber Emmanuel Adebayor.

Over four years, Fioranelli is ready to invest between €150-160 million in the transfer market and one of the African strikers is the first name on the list.

However, alternatives such as Real Madrid duo Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Gonzalo Higuain, as well as Milan veteran Andrey Shevchenko are being touted as alternatives, as the Premier League outfits may not let their star assets leave.

Roma struggled in Serie A last season, coming in sixth place and thus missing out on Champions League football.
