Italian international Gianluigi Donnarumma completed a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain during the summer transfer window and he was expected to establish himself as a regular starter for the French outfit.

However, the former AC Milan goalkeeper has struggled to displace Keylor Navas in the starting lineup so far and he is being linked with a move back to the Italian league.

As per Corriere della Serra (via TeamTalk), Juventus have been tipped as a potential destination for the Italian international who is frustrated with the lack of regular first-team action.

Donnarumma was outstanding for Milan last year and he was undoubtedly the best keeper during the European Championships. A player of his quality needs to play more often.

It will be interesting to see if PSG are willing to let him leave anytime soon.

The goalkeeper has signed a long term contract with the French outfit and they are under no pressure to cash in on him just yet.

Furthermore, reports from Corriere della Serra (via bescoccer) state that South American goalkeeper Keylor Navas retains the support of the key members of the first team and the South American contingent at the club which includes Lionel Messi is currently backing Navas to retain his position as the starting goalkeeper.

The former Real Madrid ace is at the peak of his powers and it is no surprise that Donnarumma is finding it difficult to break into the starting lineup.

The Italian was signed as a long term replacement for the former Real Madrid goalkeeper and he will probably have to be a little bit patient before he gets his chance.
