Top football clubs from China are trying hard to lure Chelsea striker Didier Drogba to play for them.

So far two Chinese football clubs, Dalian Aerbin and Shanghai Shenhua have offered Drogba, mega deals of 200,000 pounds per week but now a third Chinese club has also joined the hunt.

Chinese Super League champions Guangzhou Evergrande has also entered the race to sign Drogba and are believed to be prepared for offering him better contract than their rivals.

The 33-year-old Ivory Coast international has six months left in his current contract with Chelsea and had earlier rejected a one-year contract extension from Chelsea, The Sun reports.

Drogba is also keen to move to the Far East after receiving numerous well-paid offers. His Chelsea counterpart, Nicolas Anelka, has already secured a move to Shanghai next month.
