NOT A KEPA
Chelsea are ready to offer £53.4million plus Kepa Arrizabalaga to sign Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The AC Milan star, 21, has emerged as Frank Lampard's top target as he looks to replace Kepa.

FERD IT HERE FIRST…
Rio Ferdinand has urged Jadon Sancho to snub Chelsea in favour of Manchester United this summer.
The Old Trafford legend said: “[Ousmane] Dembele, who was at Dortmund then went to Barcelona, was thought of similarly to Sancho and went [to a big club] for big money and it didn't work for him.
“I don't want to see that for Jadon. I want to see him go to a team where he will play and then improve.
“Hes going to be expensive, but I think Manchester United is the place for him to go, but I am biased.”
Joe Wicks, better known as The Body Coach, is a big fan of Chelsea.
Speaking to Chelsea Magazine about how he started supporting the Blues, he said: “I've been a fan since I was about 10 years old.
“I grew up in Epsom and we used to go to Kingstonian and watch the friendly game there every year.
“This was when the likes of Gianfranco Zola, Gianluca Vialli and Roberto Di Matteo were playing.”
