Reports in England say Chelsea could attempt to sign Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma if Thibaut Courtois is sold this summer.
The Rossoneri’s 17-year-old has been one of the surprises of the season since usurping Diego Lopez as Sinisa Mihajlovic’s first choice goalkeeper back in October.
Manchester United were linked with a move for the youngster on Monday after reports suggested Milan could be considering a sale.
The Mail Online have now reported that Chelsea are eyeing up a move after Courtois refused to commit himself to the London club.
There is a possibility that the Belgium international could leave for Real Madrid this summer, and the outlet believes that Donnarumma has been identified as his replacement.
Antonio Conte is widely expected to take over at Stamford Bridge and is an admirer of the Milan youngster, who Chelsea would offer €38m for according to the report.
Conte’s good relationship with Donnarumma’s agent Mino Raiola could also prove to be important should the Premier League outfit step up their interest.
