Donnarumma has previously been linked to Tottenham, with reports having emerged that Spurs were keen on making a move for the Italian number one over the summer. However, that interest was cooled when it was reported he could sign a new deal with AC Milan, per The Sun.
Tottenham may have chance to swoop
Despite the reports over the summer, Donnarumma is still yet to commit his future to the Serie A club. That means that at the moment his current deal expires in the summer, so he could sign a pre-contract agreement with a Premier League side in the January transfer window, per Football London.
Mourinho will be alerted to any potential availability of the keeper and it is thought that he is one of many potential free agents that Spurs could line up, per Football London. Tottenham did sign Joe Hart in the summer on a free transfer, but he is firmly behind Hugo Lloris in the pecking order.
However, it is thought that AC Milan are still aiming to tie Donnarumma down to a new deal with the club hopeful a resolution can be found soon, per Football Italia, via Football London. Were the keeper to sign a new contract it would likely end any chances of a move for Tottenham.
Donnarumma would be excellent long-term signing for Spurs
Tottenham do have one of the best keepers in the world still on their books in Lloris, but the France international is entering the latter stages of his career now. Donnarumma is still only 21-years-old and yet has firmly established himself as both AC Milan’s and Italy’s number one. That type of ability has seen him described by fellow shot-stopper Asmir Begovic as a player who will ‘shatter all sorts of records’.
Last season the Italian recorded 12 clean sheets, averaged 2.8 saves per game and saved four out of eight penalties that he faced in Serie A (Sofascore). That form though was only good enough to help Milan finish in 6th place. If he wants to secure regular Champions League football he may need to move away. Spurs will feel that is something they could offer under Mourinho.
