MLS side Montreal Impact have squashed talk of a possible Italian loan move for in-form striker Didier Drogba.

The former Chelsea striker was rumoured by Italian newspapers to be in the process of completing a loan move to Serie A side Bologna once the American season comes to a close next month.

Yet his MLS club has dismissed such talk, insisting it is merely rumours.

"Rumours coming from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean suggested that Didier Drogba would play in Italy, more precisely on loan with Italian club Bologna F.C. after the MLS playoffs," a statement released by the club read.

"The Impact denied those rumours on Tuesday, originally reported by Italian media and newspapers who cover soccer almost exclusively and on a daily basis.

"The Italian club, the Impact, nor Drogba have ever discussed this possibility."

The 37-year-old Ivorian has been in fine form since joining his new club, netting 12 times in 13 appearances, helping his side reach the semi-finals of the MLS play-offs.

Montreal are favourites to progress to the Conference Finals ahead of Sunday’s second-leg, having already beaten Colombus Crew 2-1 in their first encounter.
