Chelsea target Gianluigi Donnarumma is set to pen a new deal at AC Milan, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
With Frank Lampard interested in adding a new stopper to the squad over the summer transfer window, there was alot of speculation in the media which suggested that Chelsea were very interested in signing Donarumma.
Regarded as one of the finest young stoppers in the game right now, and the man to be the next Gianluigi Buffon, Donnarumma is making a real name for himself in the game and has been in the headlines alot over his future, as he simply could not agree a new contract.
That uncertainty meant that there was an opportunity for Chelsea to wrap up a transfer deal, but that massive £80 million asking price and the fact Donnarumma was not sure whether he wanted to move, meant that Chelsea acquired the brilliant Edouard Mendy instead.
That has not stopped rumours that Chelsea may still be interested in Donnarumma, to add a bit of depth to the side, but it seems like they will once again miss out on the chance to sign the Italian big man.
Reports in the media have claimed that Chelsea and AC Milan have agreed a loan deal for Fikayo Tomori
There has been big hopes for Tomori from Chelsea fans for some time now and many expected him to make a serious impact on the side this season, but that ha snot been the case and he has struggled for game time.
That led to Frank Lampard recently admitting that Tomori is free to leave on loan this season, as he would not be able to guarantee him the game time that he very much wants, and needs, for his development.
