The report goes on to reveal that Chelsea FC believe a move to sign the highly-rated Italy international is a “long shot” but Frank Lampard is eager to sign a new goalkeeper.

Football Insider add that AC Milan are likely to secure a transfer fee in the region of £50m for the club’s youth product given his reputation as one of the next big goalkeeper talents.

The article reveals that the west London side are looking to structure a deal in such a way that is favourable to the FA Cup runners up.

Donnarumma has already made 203 appearances for AC Milan over the past five seasons after the Italian goalkeeper made his debut at the age of 16 years and 242 days in 2016.

The AC Milan shot stopper has already made 16 appearances of the Italy national team.
