According to reports from Calcio Mercato, Liverpool have joined Chelsea and Manchester United in the race to sign AC Milan goalkeeping sensation Gianluigi Donnarumma. 

The 16-year-old is amid an incredible debut season at the San Siro, muscling former Real Madrid star Diego Lopez out of the starting Xi to record 41 saves and six clean sheets in 18 Serie A appearances, and the Premier League’s top clubs have accordingly taken note.

Manchester United are reportedly preparing a €40million bid for the summer transfer window, eyeing the Italy U17 as a potential replacement for Real Madrid target David De Gea, whilst Chelsea goalkeeper Marco Amelia recently told Milan TV that Donnarumma’s potential is a recurring subject of discussion between coaches and scouts at Stamford Bridge.

Their interest is documented once again by Calcio Mercato, but the Italian publication – citing TuttoSport – claim Premier League rivals Liverpool are also targeting the 6 foot 5 shot-stopper. Despite recently issuing Simon Mignolet a new contract, many expect the Reds to sign an alternative No.1 during the summer transfer window.

However, the Premier League trio face a few obstacles in regards to signing Donnarumma. Agent Mino Raiola – whose other clients include Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – has publicly valued him at an incredible £119mllion, whilst AC Milan are working on an improved contract for the prodigious teenager.
