Hunting the striker The next ten days will be of waiting, for the striker. The Bianconeri can afford not to be in a hurry and carefully evaluate every occasion there before. Certainly, however, an attacker is deemed necessary by Antonio Conte. The names are always the same: Drogba, Llorente, Gabbiadini and Borriello. Top of the list is definitely the Ivorian, but as long as the economic demands do not exceed the parameters that the Bianconeri have set for him: a year and a half of contract for a total of € 5.5 million plus bonuses.
Marotta, a guest at the Domenica Sportiva confirms the line: “Drogba? You always do the surveys and we have done it. We recorded his availability after should be checked the economic compatibility and then we go to the coach.” Meanwhile it is always on the table of Athletic Bilbao the offer (not negotiable) for Fernando Llorente, out of contract, which is used with the dropper by Bielsa and usable immediately in the Champions League: three million immediately for him in January, otherwise all postponed to June, with the Basques who would lose the player for free.
