Chelsea in Raiola contact for AC Milan keeper Donnarumma

Chelsea have made contact with agent Mino Raiola about AC Milan goalkeeper Gigio Donnarumma.

The Sunday Express says Chelsea have asked Raiola to keep them updated on contract talks between AC Milan and highly-rated goalkeeper Donnarumma.

The Italy international is entering into the final 12 months of his contract and Milan want to tie him down to a longer-term deal as soon as they can.

But renowned hard negotiator Raiola is aware that interest is high with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain as well as The Blues courting his client and is ready to play hard-ball.

Donnarumma, 21, is rated at around £55million by Milan which wouldn't be a problem for Chelsea who are looking to sell Spanish shot-stopper Kepa this summer.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has fallen out of favour with Frank Lampard who has been looking around Europe to find a top-class replacement and is keen to see if Donnarumma renews his deal.
