Liverpool FC are considering a summer transfer move to sign Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan, according to reports in Italy.

Italian newspaper La Repubblica is reporting that the Reds are monitoring the 19-year-old’s situation at the San Siro as they look to try and strengthen their squad ahead of next season.

Liverpool FC could be set to ramp up their search for a new goalkeeper this summer after Loris Karius’ two high-profile mistakes cost the Reds dearly in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

The same story says that the Reds are keen on signing the young Italian goalkeeper from AC Milan, but the price tag could be an issue for the Merseyside outfit.

The article claims that Liverpool FC are currently only willing to offer around €40m for the teenager, which would not be enough to tempt AC Milan into selling. The story says that AC Milan value the goalkeeper at closer to €70m.

Liverpool FC are likely to be linked with a host of players this summer as they look to try and strengthen their squad ahead of next season.

The Reds finished fourth in the Premier League table as their quest to win their first trophy under Jurgen Klopp continues.
