Juventus have made "significant progress" in their bid to sign Didier Drogba (left), who has agreed in principle to an 18-month deal with the Serie A champions, reports said yesterday.

The 34-year-old signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Shanghai Shenhua in July but the Ivory Coast striker could be reconsidering his options after a disappointing start to his career in China, where Shenhua recently finished well down the league table.

Drogba has recently been in London, where his representatives have reportedly been in talks with Juventus management over a future deal.
