Chelsea is looking at the possibility of snapping Manchester United target and AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma who might be available for free during the summer transfer window.
The Italian is yet to agree on fresh terms with the second-placed team on the Italia Serie A table with the likes of Manchester United strongly linked with a move as they want him as David de Gea’s replacement.
Chelsea has now seen an opportunity to grab as they will be looking to offload Kepa Arrizabalaga and also Edouard Mendy’s age which makes perfect sense that they go after Donnaruma who is much younger.
The Blues don’t necessarily need to be in another goalkeeper as their two options are currently on high form but they might sign him and loan him out just like they did with Thibaut Courtois who was bought from Atletico Madrid.
Blues ready to snap goalkeeper up on free transfer as he is yet to reach an agreement with his current team and there have been no talks yet with other clubs also interested in the shot-stopper.
Chelsea is ready to offer Gianluigi Donnarumma a contract worth €10.5 million (£9m/$13m) per season if they get to sign him ahead of Manchester United and other interested clubs, according to a report from Libero Quotidiano.
The goalkeeper will leave AC Milan on a free transfer this summer when his contract expires and the Blues hope to lure him to London to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.
They are strong indications that he might be loaned if they sign him as Thomas Tuchel won’t be looking to get rid of any of his current number one and two in charge of mounting the goal post.
Chelsea’s next game will be against another strong opposition in Everton after recording a 1-0 win against Liverpool last night as Mason Mount scored the winner of the game.
