CHELSEA are targeting a move for AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma to replace flop Kepa Arrizabalaga, according to reports.
Frank Lampard is desperate to replace the £71.6million goalkeeper after a dreadful 2019-20.
And reports claim the Blues are set to continue their sensational spending on the £45m-rated Italian after contacting agent Mino Raiola.
Chelsea have already looked at Dean Henderson, Andre Onana, Jan Oblak and Edouard Mendy.
Henderson signed a new five-year contract at Manchester United, while deals for Onana and Oblak proved fruitless.
Ajax appeared unwilling to sell Onana cheaply, while Atletico Madrid wants Oblak's £109m release clause met in full.
The Blues turned their attention to Rennes stopper Mendy, but saw a £15m bid knocked back.

Now, reports in Italy have claimed Lampard is aiming bigger – with a mega-money swoop for Donnarumma.
The Italian, 21, is out of contract at the San Siro at the end of the season.
Milan now face a race against time to tie Donnarumma down to a new deal or face losing him for free next summer.
Chelsea are now set to test the Serie A giants' resolve with a £45m bid.
The Blues have even already contacted the stopper's agent, Raiola, as they attempt to swiftly conclude a deal, according to the report.
Burnley's Nick Pope and Watford's Ben Foster have also been linked with Chelsea.
Whoever is brought in, Lampard's monster summer spending looks to be carrying on well into the transfer window.
The Blues have already signed Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malan Sarr, with Kai Havertz on the brink of joining, too.
