Didier Drogba, a Chelsea legend, is assisting the club in their pursuit of Feyenoord midfielder Orkun Kokcu during the summer transfer window.
Following a successful season in the Eredivisie, Kokcu has received a lot of transfer attention.
Arsenal, AC Milan, Roma, Tottenham Hotspur, and a slew of other European clubs have expressed interest in signing Kokcu.
But Chelsea is now in pole position to take the 20-year-old to Stamford Bridge this summer, thanks to some intervention from Drogba.
Turkish TV channel Vole reports that the former Ivory Coast striker, who scored 164 goals in 381 matches for Chelsea, arranged a meeting between the Blues and Kokcu’s family.
Kokcu made 22 league appearances for Feyenoord in the 2020-21 campaign.
He scored three goals and registered three assists for the Holland club.
Speaking about his future at Feyenoord, Kokcu said earlier in the season: “I have a contract until 2025, but the situation has changed.”
