Liverpool FC are fast becoming Gianluigi Donnarumma’s preferred destination in the summer transfer window, according to a report in Italy.

Italian media website Calciomercato, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have cooled their interest in Donnarumma.

The same article states that Liverpool FC remain interested in the teenager as the Reds look to sign a goalkeeper capable of becoming their long-term number one.

According to the same story, Donnarumma’s outspoken agent Mino Raiola is desperate to get the Italy international out of AC Milan ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

The Italian media outlet suggest that Liverpool FC are now Donnarumma’s best option for a summer move with PSG and Real Madrid set to look elsewhere.

Liverpool FC number one Loris Karius has established himself as Jurgen Klopp’s first-choice goalkeeper in the past couple of months.

The Merseyside outfit are in the Champions League final following victories over FC Porto, Manchester City and AS Roma in the knockout stage so far.

Liverpool FC haven’t got their hands on the Champions League title since 2005 and the Reds face 12-time winners Real Madrid in the Kiev showpiece.

The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term.
