Didier Drogba has called on Neymar to make the move to Europe and show his worth for a top team, as Chelsea continue to be connected to the Brazil international.

Neymar produced another stunning goal for Santos against Japanese side Kashiwa Reysol in the FIFA Club World Cup this week, and the teenager is now getting ready to play Barcelona in the final.

But Drogba, who himself is currently still in contract discussions with Chelsea, believes the hitman should move to prove that he's as good as the pundits believe.

"He's the best player in Brazil, was nominated for the Ballon d'Or in recent days," Drogba said.

"He has to come to Europe to play and show that all the good things people are saying about him are really true."

Neymar would no doubt be close to a record signing for Chelsea, with the long standing target set to cost the Blues around £50 million if they do make a move.

Roman Abramovich has long been a fan of Neymar, and the striker himself has admitted in the past that a move to Stamford Bridge would be a 'dream come true.'

But Barcelona and Real Madrid are also chasing his signature, and last summer the La Liga giants were widely believed to be front runners to bring Neymar on board.

But instead, he went against joining a top European club, and committed to Santos until after the Brazil World Cup in 2014.

Neymar will be 22 when the World Cup is finished, and if his form is as good as it is now, or better, the South American starlet could go for even higher than his current £50 million fee.

Chelsea will be monitoring his progress over the next few seasons either way, after having a bid turned down for his signature in 2010.
