Italian giants Juventus are reportedly in talks to sign Ivory Coast and Galatasaray forward Didier Drogba in the summer transfer window.

Despite turning 36 recently, the Ivorian international has delivered outstanding performances with the Turkish club that have constantly brought him into the spotlight.

According to a report published on Football Italia on Saturday, the agent of the former Chelsea star is currently in Turin to discuss the deal terms with Juventus officials.

The Italians have reportedly proposed a one-year offer worth 4 million euros per season, with an option for a second year as their boss Antonio Conte considers the Ivorian star to be the ideal extra player for the Champions League.

Drogba joined Galarasaray in January 2013 from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua, and has since scored 15 times in 35 appearances.
