Created on 09 Jan., 2013 5:56 PM GMT

Juventus have enquired about the availability of striker Didier Drogba, the former Chelsea star's agent has confirmed.

The Serie A leaders are keen to add some more firepower to their squad and general manager Giuseppe Marotta revealed earlier this week they were looking into the possibility of signing the Ivory Coast international among others.

However, Juve's interest is still in its initial stages, and the Shanghai Shenhua striker is happy to focus on his country's Africa Cup of Nations campaign for now.

"It is true that there has been contact with Juventus. Nothing's concrete at this point, though," Seydi told Tuttosport.

"Juventus, AC Milan, Celtic are all interesting teams, but Didier is still a Shanghai Shenhua player. He's a great player and he is only thinking about the AFCON at the moment."

Drogba joined Shanghai from Chelsea in the off-season.
