Chelsea have identified CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia as a potential replacement for Didier Drogba, according to the Daily Mail.
Drogba is set to leave Chelsea this summer after 8 years at Stamford Bridge, with his final kick in a Blues shirt securing the Champions League trophy last weekend bringing to an end a glorious spell in West London. His departure will leave a huge hole up front that needs to be filled and the Mail claim that the Londoners have added Doumbia to the list of candidates.
The 24-year-old CSKA Moscow striker is an international team mate of both Drogba and Saloman Kalou, who will also be leaving Chelsea this summer, and is valued at around £26m by his club.
