London: Arsenal, in a desperate attempt to find a replacement for Robin van Persie, are keen to sign Didier Drogba from Shanghai Shenhua.

Reports from British media suggested that they have made enquiries with the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua to see if there is a way of bringing the striker back to London.

Meanwhile, there were reports of internal tensions in the club and the Gunners are hoping to capitalise on it.

Drogba signed two-and-a-half year deal with Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua for £200,000 a week in June 2012.
