Ayegbeni believes Drogba played at a higher level than Liverpool ace, Mohamed Salah, who has enjoyed an impressive start to the current season, scoring 15 goals in 12 appearances for the Reds.
Salah recently overtook Drogba as the highest-scoring African player in Premier League history.
The Egyptian international surpassed the former Ivory Coast captain after scoring a hat-trick in Liverpool’s 5-0 victory against Manchester United last weekend.
Salah now has 107 goals in 167 Premier League games, while Drogba netted 104 goals during his time at Chelsea.
“You cannot say Salah is the greatest African to play in the Premier League. Drogba was something special because he was scoring for fun,” Ayegbeni told Goal.
