Isaac Drogba, son of the former Chelsea and Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba, has signed a deal with Italian fourth division side Folgore Caratese.

The 20-year-old, who is an attacker just as his brilliant father was, has joined the Lombardy-based side after spells in the Chelsea youth set-up and with the under-19 and B teams of French side Guingamp.

His father Didier began his career in the French second tier at Le Mans before going on to win four Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the UEFA Champions League at Chelsea and a Turkish title with Galatasaray.

He became the Ivory Coast's all-time top scorer before retiring in 2018.

Isaac will now be tasked with firing his new employers towards Serie C, as they currently sit seventh in Group A of Serie D, two points outside a playoff spot.
