AC Milan are chasing Drogba AND Adebayor

Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Adebayor are targets for AC Milan as they step up their search for a big-name striker.
MirrorFootball revealed on Tuesday that Chelsea could be set to offer Drogba, 33, a new two-year deal.
But Serie A champions Milan could be ready to test Chelsea and Drogba with a £10million move and will go for Manchester City outcast Adebayor if that bid fails.
Drogba held off £50m signing Fernando Torres last season and it could be more likely that Nicolas Anelka is sold by the Blues this summer.
Chelsea have yet to appoint a successor to manager Carlo Ancelotti, who was sacked on the final day of the season last month.
Turkey boss Guus Hiddink has been strongly linked with the role but last night claimed there has been no contact from Stamford Bridge.
Hiddink, preparing his team for tomorrow night’s Euro qualifier visit to Belgium, said: “Nobody has knocked on my door yet, there is nothing concrete to discuss. My contract with the Turkish football federation is until 2012.
“It’s not that easy to just leave. Neither me, nor the federation, has received any official offers.”
