Report If Drogba Leaves - Who Should Chelsea Replace Him With? in UK and ROI Football Posted May 11, 2009 Re: If Drogba Leaves - Who Should Chelsea Replace Him With? There are a few possible replacements for Drogba. Ignoring the obvious suggestions of Eto and Ibrahimovic, two players that I don't think are that similar to Drogba, there are players like Amauri, Benzema and Pogrebnyak who may be a good replacement for Drogba. Those three are physical forwards where as Eto is more about pace and Ibrahimovic is more a nonchalant link forward who chips in with the odd spectacular goal (I'm not the biggest fan of Ibrahimovic by the way). Either Milito or Gilardino would also be a shrewd signing and would probably guarantee twenty goals a season but the three I mentioned earlier are the best match to Drogba where as the rest I mentioned are more similar to Anelka with the exception of Ibrahimovic obviously who's different to everybody.
