Serie A side AC Milan have rejected the £30million bid from Chelsea for their defender Alessio Romagnoli, according to SkySports.
The Blues have been keeping tabs on Romagnoli for the past several months but unfortunately their first bid was rejected by the Italian side recently.
The 21-year-old Italian joined Milan for £21million from Roma last year. He made more than 30 starts for the Italian giants last season and was also compared to club legendary center-back Alessandro Nesta.
AC Milan have no plans to sell their star defender but a big offer could change their mind and Chelsea are the side that can come up with a surprise offer.
