AC Milan are keen on signing Fikayo Tomori this summer. The 23-year-old was on loan from Chelsea till the end of the season. The Blues sent him with a buy-back clause valued at €28 million. His deal at Chelsea runs all the way till 2024 which evidently open doors for transfer talks.
Tomori has had a very fruitful 5 months at Milan. The youngster racked up 17 Serie A outings and 4 Europa League appearances. He also managed to squeeze in a goal in Milan’s 3-0 win against Juventus.
The Rossoneris are behind him and are looking to get him sign a deal. Manager Stephano Pioli and Technical director Paulo Maldini are huge admirers of the Canadian-born Englishman. But the sum seems to be apparently huge to pay after having the player for just half a season.
Milan are trying to negotiate for Tomori
Tomori has established himself as a first-team regular and will surely look to get his career on the move. After a good start in the previous season, Tomori fell out of place and lost his spot in Frank Lampard’s squad. He was among the many Lampard promoted to the first team. He bagged his first goal with his very first shot but could not keep up the momentum.
With the arrival of Thiago Silva, Tomori’s place in the squad was as good as gone. He managed to scrounge up 4 appearances during his time at Chelsea this season. Lampard too was facing the fire for terrible results and did not risk playing his bench. Things have changed a lot since then. AC Milan are looking to negotiate for the defender.
The deal might happen
Chelsea are very unlikely to budge to Milan’s negotiations. They just won the Champions League this week and will look to strengthen their squad to try for the Premier League title next season.
Tomori did not make it into Gareth Southgate’s 33-man English squad for the Euro. Milan are staring at a possibility of losing Donnarumma this summer and will surely go all in to seal the deal.
