Chelsea have reportedly opened talks with AC Milan over a potential deal for goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma this summer.
The Blues have already been one of the most active clubs in the transfer market ahead of the 2020-21 season but are still eyeing further additions, with a new keeper now one of Frank Lampard‘s top priorities.
Kepa Arrizabalaga was heavily criticised last season and ended the campaign with the worst save percentage in the Premier League, prompting Lampard to consider replacements for the world’s most expensive keeper.
Football Insider reports that Chelsea have now opened talks with Milan over a deal for Donnarumma, who has just one year remaining on his current contract at San Siro.
However, Milan are still holding out for a £50m offer for the 21-year-old, who has already made more than 200 first-team appearances for the club having broken into the senior set-up at the age of just 16.
Chelsea have also been linked with Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, but have been put off by the Ligue 1 outfit’s £45m asking price.
