Didier Drogba’s days as a Galatasaray player is numbered, and if reports by French paper L'Equipe are to be believed, the former Chelsea striker will be joining Serie A side Juventus as a free agent.

The Ivory Coast International will be out of contract after his 18-month deal with the Turkish club runs out, and Juventus are one of the teams who are looking to rope in the striker to add fire to their already star-studdled forward line which includes Fernando Llorente, Carlos Tevez and Mirko Vucinic..

beIN Sports correspondent Tancredi Palmeri has confirmed the reports:

According to L’Equipe, both the parties have already reached an agreement for a one-year deal, and the player will be leaving the club as a free agent this summer.

The 36-year-old has been crucial for Galatasaray this season, having scored 12 times and assisting three times.
