Chelsea have just received a boost in their chase for a top Kepa Arrizibalaga replacement.
Frank Lampard is fed up with the club record signing and would like to drop him for a better player next season.
Reports from Italy claim that Gianluigi Donnaromma is keen on a Premier League switch after appearing in over 200 games for AC Milan. The 21-year-old is Italy’s number one goalkeeper and one of the hottest talents in the Serie A. Of course, signing will be a of great value for Chelsea, given his age and potential to reach the very top scale in his position.
“Donnarumma is very interesting because he has just one year left on his contract,” Italian football expert, David Amyol told the CalcioLandPod podcast. “He earns very big wages at a young age and I think he actually deserves his wages because he is a great keeper, but he’s rightfully going to want to be paid more.
“Milan is in a situation where they are actually trying to cut payroll and lower even more their top wages, plus Donnarumma would net Milan a huge profit. Donnarumma has no amortised value, so that would definitely help Milan if they could sell him for £50 or £60 million – maybe even more. I think PSG makes a good amount of sense because Leonardo’s there, and they obviously have an ‘in’ on the Italian market, but I think Donnarumma would be open to the Premier League.”
