AC Milan claim Romagnoli is not for sale at any price.
Chelsea may look to sign Ricardo Rodriguez from VfL Wolfsburg or Stephan Lichsteiner from Juventus instead.
Chelsea turned to Romagnoli after failing to agree a deal with Napoli for their defender Kalidou Koulibay.
Romagnoli arrived at Milan from Roma for approximately £20 million last summer. His contract with Milan expires in 2020 and he is currently earning roughly £35,000-a-week.
Milan gave the following statement on their website:
Milan has received a very lucrative offer from Chelsea for Alessio Romagnoli. The player, however, is untransferable and therefore this offer will not be accepted. We thank Chelsea, a club Milan always have had the best of relationships.
Chelsea have made signing new defenders a priority in this transfer window. They currently only have four fully-fit senior defenders: John Terry, Gary Cahill, Cèsar Azpilicueta and Branislav Ivanovic.
