Galatasaray defender Emmanuel Eboue has said that he is hoping that fellow Ivory Coast international Didier Drogba will join him at the Turkish club.

Didier Drogba is out of contract at the end of the season. He wants two year deal from Chelsea, who are preferred to offer him only a one-year deal. The 34-year-old striker will be out of contract in a matter of few weeks, but he has already helped Chelsea win their first Champions League crown. In the past, he has been linked with a move to China where his former Chelsea team mate Nicolas Anelka waits.

However, Emmanuel Eboue has said that he is extremely confident that Didier Drogba will make the move to Turkish football at the end of the season. Eboue has been a huge hit at Galatasaray after his move from Arsenal in the summer. He has helped the club win the Turkish league by some distance this season. Yet, it remains to be seen if Didier Drogba will want to move to Turkish football due to the fact that still there are a number of big clubs interested in him. Only a few weeks ago, it emerged that Barcelona are interested in signing the Ivory Coast international.

“I’m very happy here. I would like another African player to join us. I’ve told Drogba a lot about life here, but I don’t know what will happen in the future. Taking the Uefa Cup in 2000 by beating Arsenal shows how big of a club Galatasaray are. I searched the Internet, read the newspapers, and I decided to come here. Our direction has been very important to me since the first day,” Eboue told Galatasaray TV. Eboue also said that he wants Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou, who is also out of contract, to come to Galatasaray.
