Donnarumma is a product of the Rossoneri youth academy and has been a regular for Stefano Pioli’s men this season. The Italian has made 16 appearances in all competitions, while keeping five clean sheets so far (as per Transfermarkt).
His agent Mino Raiola has already confirmed that there are clubs who are looking to sign him but he refused to give too many details about a potential contract renewal for the young goalkeeper.
The rumour linking him with a move to Spurs caught the attention of some other fans too.
That would be awesome…..

I always see him as an ideal Lloris replacement in the future. Been superb since his debut years ago. https://t.co/8Scu5I1Om3

Some of these Spurs fans would like Donnarumma at Spurs, while others don’t feel confident that the Lilywhites can sign him.
The 21-year-old Italian has overperformed on his post-shot XG metric consistently over the last three seasons and it shows that he is a very good shot-stopper (as per FBRef).
He is still 21 and might still improve in the future. So if Spurs do get the chance to sign Donnarumma, they should try their best to get him.
