Chelsea are in transfer talks over a surprise move to sign AC Milan goalkeeper Diego Lopez, Metro has revealed.
The 34-year-old lost his regular place at Milan after the arrival of Sinisa Mihajlovic who opted for young Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Chelsea need a new goalkeeper after recent reports have claimed that Asmir Begovic will leave the club to join Everton.
In May, Lopez declared that there was "something strange" behind Mihajlovic's decision to relegate him on the bench.
"I was surprised by the attitude of Sinisa Mihajlovic, who did many strange things with me," he said.
"Then I injured my knee, and was out for four months, and the truth is the kid did very well. One day just 20 minutes into the game, as I did not pass the ball short, he [Mihajlovic] sent out the sub keeper to warm up.
"Another time, after I conceded a goal, some crazy gestures began from the bench.
"He did not show me respect, and I don't know what the reasons were, but I know that there was something strange behind it all. But well, football has these things, and I never lacked respect for anyone. It's also true that Gianluigi deserves to be there."
