Keeper reacts to reports he could replace Kepa at Chelsea

Gianluigi Donnarumma has insisted he is committed to AC Milan amid reports linking him with various clubs, including Chelsea.

The 21-year-old is regarded as one of the world’s top young goalkeepers and has been touted as a possible replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga at Stamford Bridge.

Kepa was dropped and criticised by boss Frank Lampard, who has been tipped to replace the Spaniard at the end of the season.

Several keepers have been linked with Chelsea, including Burnley’s Nick Pope and Bournemouth’s Aaron Ramsdale.

Donnarumma has long been linked with Chelsea and reports are again suggesting that he is on the Blues’ radar – and the Daily Express say Chelsea are willing to pay £60m in order to sign him.

But Donnarumma has insisted that his focus is on Milan, where his contract expires in 2021.

“The Rossoneri colours mean a lot to me, because I grew up here. I have always been a Milan fan and I can’t help but give my best for this shirt,” he told his club’s website, as reported by the Mail.

“The first goal is the one I share with the club and the one we have set ourselves at the beginning of the season.

“The personal goal is to always give my best and try to concede as few goals as possible.”
