AC Milan looks to make the loan deal for 24-year-old England defender Fikayo Tomori’s of Chelsea permanent.
Tomori sealed a loan move to the Serie A club in January after previous boss Frank Lampard decided he was not part of his immediate plans at Stamford Bridge.
The defender’s loan deal is due for him to return to London at the end of the season. However, the Serie A title-chasers did manage to secure an option to buy the defender for a few of £25m.
They are been tipped to sign the Tomori’ up at the £25m and sell him for huges sums of profit though at the time, that fee looked quite steep. However, Tomori’s huge impact in Italy means Milan will likely go in that angle.
Chelsea probably did not expect Tomori to have the impact that he’s had in Serie A. Despite having played just 12 games so far, he’s won rave reviews and many observers have been won over.
On Sky sports Paolo Ziliani, an Italian pundit, said Tomori has already eclipsed Juventus’ Matthijs de Ligt as the best young defender in Serie A, and allowing him to leave for the San Siro could be a decision Chelsea comes to regret, he noted.
