The Ivory Coast international’s contract at Stamford Bridge runs out in the summer and an extension has not been agreed, leading to rumours of links with several clubs, including Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenua, where former Blues team-mate Nicolas Anelka has just taken charge as player-manager.

|35/1||Didier Drogba to score anytime and Chelsea to beat Arsenal 1-0 is 35/1 with bet365|
Drogba was coy over his future after he scored the winner in Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final, but his agent Thierno Seydi said this morning that the striker wants to stay.
"What Didier is showing right now may lead the club to think again [about offering a new contract]," Seydi told L'Equipe.
"Didier loves Chelsea, he wants to stay but if it doesn't work out he'll leave. We have many offers."
Drogba’s refusal to sign a new contract in November under manager Andre Villas-Boas put several clubs on alert, including some of Chelsea’s Premier League rivals, but Seydi believes the 34-year-old will not move to any other club in England.
He added"One thing is sure: if Didier is still in England next season it will be with Chelsea and nobody else."
