Milan - AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma could miss Italy's Euro 2020 qualifiers against Greece and Bosnia next month after his club confirmed on Monday he had suffered a hamstring injury.

The 20-year-old, who has 12 caps for the national side, picked up the problem twenty minutes into Milan's final Serie A game of the season, a 3-2 win over SPAL on Sunday.

"Donnarumma has undergone medical exams to verify the extent of his injury, showing damage to the goalkeeper's right hamstring muscle," the seven-time European champions said in a statement.

An issue like this can take up to a month to heal with the Azzurri's next two European qualifiers in Greece on June 6 and against Bosnia in Turin on June 11.

AC Milan failed to qualify for the Champions League after finishing fifth in Serie A this season, and will play in the Europa League for a third straight campaign.
