Serie A giants eyeing move for Italy international stopper

Italy international goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma has reportedly told AC Milan that it will take a significant pay rise in order to keep him at San Siro amid interest from Premier League giants Chelsea.

The 21-year-old stopper has less than a one year left on his current deal at San Siro and is believed to be on the Blues radar as they search for a new keeper.

Frank Lampard is keen to bring in someone to challenge Spanish goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga for the No.1 spot at Stamford Bridge next campaign and recent reports claim that they are considering a £50m offer for Italian stopper.

Milan remain keen to keep hold of the Italy international, however, talks over an extension to his current contract have so far proved fruitless.

Corriere della Serra reports that Donnarumma is asking for a salary around €10m (£9m) per year to pen fresh terms – a substantial jump from his current £5.4m-a-year deal.

Italian goalkeeper has already played more than 200 games for AC Milan despite only turning 21 in February, having broken into the first team squad as a 16-year-old.

Meanwhile, Chelsea also eyeing a move for another Serie A stopper Thomas Strakosha  as he has been tipped with a departure from Lazio.
