Italian goalkeeping starlet Gianluigi Donnarumma is a confirmed target for Juventus after Juventus chief Beppe Marotta confirmed the Serie A side would show interest in the Italian teenage shot-stopper.

Gianluigi Donnarumma confirmed that he would reject all contract offers from AC Milan and numerous clubs around Europe have expressed an interest in the goalkeeping prospect. Amongst those clubs in the race are believed to be Real Madrid, Arsenal and Paris St Germain. However, it is understood Donnarumma prefers to stay in Italy for the time being and Juventus could be his next destination.

When Marotta had been asked about a move for the keeper, he replied: "It is clear that Juve has the right to look at all the opportunities. When a player is on the market, we have a duty to try."

Donnarumma is currently valued at around 25 million euros by AC Milan and the keeper has just one season remaining on his contract with the San Siro side. He is seen as a long-term replacement at Juve for current number 1, Gigi Buffon.
