With Cristiano Ronaldo gone, there is a big void to fill in the 2009/10 Golden Boot market – and Simon Hopper has run the rule over the main contenders. See his recommendation and thoughts on the market here.

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is set to sign a new three-year deal, according to the club’s manager Carlo Ancelotti.

“Drogba is a very important player for us and we want him to play for Chelsea,” said Ancelotti.

“He’s irreplaceable, as no other striker in the world can do the same job. I’ve spoken with Drogba and he’s told me he’s happy to stay.”

The new deal would extend Drogba’s stay in west London to 2012.

Ancelotti also claimed that Chelsea captain John Terry, who is being targeted by Manchester City, would stay at Stamford Bridge.

“He’s our captain and we need him and we know he’s going to stay with us and win more trophies,” Drogba told ESPN.

However, one player who looks set to be leaving Chelsea is Ukrainian striker Andriy Shevchenko.

The 32-year-old has one-year left on his contract but Ancelotti admitted: “I speak to Shevchenko every day and the situation is this: he’s with us until 31 August and then, together, we will make a decision.

“But I don’t know what will happen as the club has not received any offers.”

Shevchenko cost Chelsea a club record £30.8m when he was signed in 2006 from Milan, where he returned last summer for a season-long loan deal.
