Chelsea FC legend Didier Drogba has urged the Blues’ hierarchy to consider moves for two Jamaican players, who are currently plying their trade with Phoenix Rising, a club which he co-owns.
The legendary striker recently revealed that he turned down the coaching role with the Blues with the view to taking up a higher position with the Ivory Coast, but he nonetheless seems to be advising the west London side on potential purchases.
According to TEAMtalk, Drogba has recommended the potential signings of Kevon Lambert and Junior Flemmings for the Blues after watching them in close quarters at Phoenix.
Flemmings is a centre-forward by trade and he has been in superb form for the Arizona-based outfit with 23 goals last season. Meanwhile, Lambert operates in the centre of the park and he is said to be highly regarded due to his aerial presence.
West Ham United, Reading and Crystal Palace have also been credited with an interest in the Jamaican pair and it will be interesting to see whether the Blues will make a formal approach based on the recommendation from Drogba.
