HELP BLUES OUT
Didier Drogba is helping Chelsea land transfer target Orkun Kokcu, according to reports.
The Feyenoord midfielder, 20, has attracted plenty of transfer interest following an impressive campaign in the Eredivisie.
AC Milan, Roma, Tottenham and Arsenal are among the clubs chasing his signature.
But Chelsea looked to have stolen a march on their rivals – thanks to some intervention from Drogba.
Turkish TV channel Vole reported the legendary striker, who scored 164 goals in 381 Blues matches, arranged a meeting between his former club and Kokcu’s family.
Drogba, 43, is not employed at Stamford Bridge but works as an ambassador for sponsors Yokohama and reportedly plays a role in chatting to potential signings.
No deal has been finalised yet but it is thought the discussions gave Chelsea the chance to present their case ahead of the Euros.
