    Everything is surface mounted those days,

    I just need small chip to control only one 3.5 inch floppy, something like
    old Intel 8272

    The NEC 765 is the same as the i8272. If you know where to find pre-286
    PC's, these almost all had cards with one of these floppy controllers and
    it was often socketed. There was often a little data separator chip
    too, be sure to pull it as well.

    The 765/8272 and many of the WD floppy controller chips (1771, 1791, 1793,
    etc) are still available from BG Micro, http://www.bgmicro.com/
