Transfer News: Tottenham receive Gianluigi Donnarumma boost
According to transfer news from Express, Tottenham have received a boost in their pursuit of Gianluigi Donnarumma. AC Milan have conceded that he will not be renewing his contract and would leave the club on a free transfer this summer.
The Italian international has already established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world. The fact that he has done it at such an early age is even more impressive. It also means that he is still not a finished product. After all, the Italian stopper is just 22 years old and has 247 appearances so far for Il Rossoneri.
Donnarumma has been in the news, with his contract set to end this season and no extension agreed yet. That attracted the attention of clubs like Spurs, Juventus and Chelsea, who wanted to sign the keeper on a free transfer at the end of the season.
However, it has now been reported that Donnarumma will not be extending his current deal at the club and will leave at the end of the season. AC Milan have almost finalised the signing of Mike Maignan and his arrival will be dependent on the departure of Donnarumma.

This does come as a huge bit of good news for Spurs as we need to find a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris. Spurs will no doubt keep a close eye on further developments. We are still in with a chance of signing one of the best young keepers in Europe on a free transfer. His addition may well secure the spot between the posts for a good 10-12 years.
