The men that could be set to replace Milan’s Gigio Donnarumma

With the news emerging that AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is set for a San Siro exit following the rejection of a new contract, we assess who might be set to replace i Rossoneri’s 18-year-old wonder kid.

Keylor Navas

With Real Madrid tipped as hot favourites to sign Donnarumma in the upcoming transfer window, speculation has arisen that Milan are keen on making the Costa Rican international a part of any potential deal.

Despite playing a role in a Madrid team that have just secured a La Liga-Champions League deal, the goalkeeper is not perceived as having a long-term career with Los Blancos – regularly being linked away from the club as a makeweight for prospective deals for some of the world’s leading goalkeepers.

If you want to tip one of our choices to be Milan's next goalkeeper, get all the top free bets here, and you can cash-in when Milan announce Donnarumma's replacement.

Navas has made 97 appearances for the club since joining from Levante, having succeeded club icon Iker Casillas as the team’s number one.

Joe Hart

One player said to be under consideration by Milan is England number one Joe Hart. The Shrewsbury Town academy product has amassed 266 appearances and two Premier League titles since his 2006 move to the sky blues but is considered surplus to requirements by boss Pep Guardiola.

Despite what many have considered to be an error strewn 2016-17 season whilst on loan to Serie A with Serie A also-rans Torino, the Englishman’s stock does still remain relatively high in world football.

Whilst Torino chairman Urbano Cairo has commented that “We didn't expect so many mistakes from an England international”, capturing the Manchester City goalkeeper’s signature would represent another positive manoeuvre for a Milan side that has already significantly bolstered its ranks over the summer.

Mattia Perin

The dynamic shot stopper from Genoa is the player being most widely tipped to take over the reins at Milan, having been linked to a €7m-plus-bonuses deal, according to Football Italia.

Still just 24 years old, Perrin would represent a continuation of the club’s willingness to harness the fledging talents of a young goalkeeper that has the potential to be moulded into a truly elite goalkeeper.

Despite having been eclipsed by the emergence of Milan’s Donnarumma in recent years, the Italian international is still considered to be a huge prospect in world football.

At such a reasonable price, signing Perin would also enable the club to invest the Donnarumma funds elsewhere on the pitch.

Wojciech Sczcęsny

The Arsenal goalkeeper has spent the past two seasons in exile at Serie A’s AS Roma following the capture of Chelsea legend Petr Cech and the re-emergence of AC Milan could prove a promising project for the Polish international as he considers the next stage of his career.

Despite strong links to current champions Juventus, manager Max Allegri has stated that no deal for the 27-year-old is yet in place, telling Corriere dello Sport: "Szczęsny? It is not a done deal, we still have to close the negotiations.”

The 2013-14 Premier League Golden Glove winner still has the best years of his career ahead of him and would represent a solid addition to the Milan ranks as they engage upon a first European campaign since 2014.
