Chelsea legend Didier Drogba retired from football last year having finished his playing career in the USA with Phoenix Rising, the second-tier club at which he is a co-owner.

The Chelsea legend is a co-owner of Phoenix Rising and reports claim that he has urged Chelsea to sign two players from his club.

Jamaican stars Kevon Lambert and Junior Flemmings are impressing for the American side and are keen on a move to England.

According to Teamtalk, the duo could be on the move to England, with the help of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba. Teamtalk also claim that Drogba has asked his former club Chelsea to take a look, whilst it is believed West Ham, Crystal Palace and Reading are also keen on the duo.

Striker Flemmings, 23, bagged 23 goals last season, whilst Lambert, 22, is a 6ft 3in midfielder.

Drogba has revealed he didn’t accept the Chelsea job because of his love for Ivorian football, as he plans on leading the country’s football federation.

Speaking at Wednesday’s meeting in Abidjan, Drogba said: “I had an offer to stay at Chelsea where everything would be perfect and conditions are met.

“But I want to help Ivorian football because I love it!”
