Shenhua Shanghai believe that they will be successful in their pursuit of Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

Didier Drogba may be on course to join former Chelsea teammate Nicolas Anelka after Shanghai Shenhua admitted that negotiations with the striker are "going well".

The 33-year-old has been linked a with a move away from Stamford Bridge, with the Chinese Super League club reportedly willing to offer the frontman £300,000 a week.

"Everything is going well so far, though there have been a few obstacles," Shenhua board member Zhou Jun told the Shanghai Daily. "It's like flirting with a girl. Perhaps she will resist you at first, but if you continue to ask her out, it always ends well. Never give up."

It is believed that the Ivorian is keen on remaining with Chelsea, but is still no closer to agreeing a new deal with the former Premier League champions.
