Chelsea has their eyes set on the 17-year-old AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

According to Daily Mail, the Blues will attempt to sign the young prodigy Goalkeeper. The Italian currently earns €90,000 per year under the contract which goes up to 2018.The player’s agent claims the shot-stopper is worth £120million, but Chelsea is willing to offer £30million for AC Milan Goalkeeper.

The youngster has already caught the eyes of many. He has been very consistent in his performances for AC Milan, maintaining 7 clean sheets and 55 saves in 22 appearances.

Despite being a huge figure on the goal line, Donnarumma is sharp in his reflexes. The 1.96m tall goalie has become the first choice goalkeeper for AC Milan ahead of Diego Lopez, the man who benched Iker Casillas at Real Madrid.

Though, it’s too early to say if he would really move to EPL this summer. The Italian feels quite happy at AC Milan. Moving to Stamford bridge would be a big leap for a player of his age. He would be quite a boost for Chelsea as Thibaut Courtois is expected to leave in the summer
