Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has refused to refused to rule out making offers for Chelsea’s Didier Drogba and the Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
Guardiola, who replaced Frank Rijkaard at the helm at the end of last season, is still on the look-out for new striking targets.
Chelsea’s Drogba and Arsenal’s Adebayor have both been touted as potential targets, however both Premier League club are keen to keep hold of the players.
Speaking after Barca’s 6-0 friendly match thrashing of Hibernian, Guardiola hinted at interest in the pair, but failed to confirm if offers have been made.
“Barcelona are always interested in good players,” Guardiola told The Guardian when asked directly about the duo.
“Those players are interesting but so are many others in England, Italy and Germany.
Asked whether he was preparing to make bids, Guardiola replied: “You would be better to speak to the sporting director [Txiki Begiristain] about the exact situation.”
