The 36-year-old, whose current contract with Gala is set to expire at the end of June, has been linked with a move to the Bianconeri in recent weeks and could be close to finalising a deal with the reigning Serie A champions in the near future.

According to Turkish website Hbbhaber.com, Drogba, who has been looking to continue his playing career with a new Champions League bound team next season, has apparently agreed to join Juventus on a two-year deal worth around €4.5 million before the start of the 2014-15 campaign.

Previous reports have claimed that Juve boss Antonio Conte was unwilling to sign the Ivorian international due to his age, though it seems he has now warmed up to the idea of having the veteran in his squad.

The striker arrived at Galatasaray from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in January 2013 and has scored a total of 15 goals in his 37 Super Lig appearances for the Turkish giants, with 10 goals coming in his 24 league appearances last term.
