Cheslea have reportedly opened negotiations with the agent of AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The Blues signed Edouard Mendy from Rennes in the summer to solve their goalkeeping issues and the Senegalese has fared impressively.
Donnarumma’s current deal with the Rossoneri expires at the end of the season and so far, he has yet to commit to a fresh contract.
Hence, he is free to negotiate a pre-contract with an overseas club and the Blues appear to have already made contact over a summer move.
Should Donnarumma agree to join the Blues, it should pave the way for the departure of Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has barely featured this term.
The Spaniard has been the second-choice shot-stopper since the arrival of Mendy and he has been fancied to return to La Liga for some while.
