​Chelsea and Tottenham receive boost in pursuit of AC Milan keeper Donnarumma

Chelsea and Tottenham are keeping tabs on AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The young shot stopper is out of contract this summer, and has yet to agree to a new deal.

And according to RMC Sport, Lille stopper Mike Maignan is joining Milan in the summer, and will replace Donnarumma.

Journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi tweeted: "Agreement in principle has been reached between AC Milan and Maignan .5 year contract.

"Agreement conditional upon departure from Donnarumma.

"Between the LOSC and Milan discussions are advanced on a deal around 15M€ (£13m) which could go up to 16.5M€ (£14m) with bonus."

Chelsea do have Edouard Mendy, but may see Donnarumma as an upgrade, and Tottenham would view him as a long term replacement for Hugo Lloris.
