Chelsea Keen on Fikayo Tomori Return

Chelsea are interested in bringing Fikayo Tomori back to the club from AC Milan, according to Football Transfers.

Uncertainity

It appears that experienced defender Thiago Silva may soon leave since there are questions over his contract renewal. As a result, The Blues are considering Tomori, a past academy graduate, to replace the Brazilian.

For a cost of £26 million, Fikayo Tomori successfully concluded a permanent move from Chelsea to Milan in 2021. Since then, the 25-year-old has gained notoriety in Italy. He contributed magnificent performances to the Rossoneri’s Serie A championship in 2021–2022. As well as their run to the Champions League semifinals the previous season.

Fikayo Tomori Return

According to a May 90min article, Tomori would be amenable to returning to the Premier League. Since he feels it would help him achieve his goal of getting more minutes and being a regular for the England national team.

Tomori’s deal at San Siro runs until 2027, and Transfermarkt values him at £34 million.
Since Todd Boehly’s consortium took over, the Blues have lavished money on centre backs.

Replacement

In light of Thiago Silva’s uncertain future, the Blues management has designated Fikayo Tomori for a potential summer move in order to assist stabilise the defence.
The Blues believe Tomori is mature and experienced enough. To match the physical nature of the Premier League. And be a towering presence in the Blues backline. Tomori gained significant experience in the much more physically demanding Italian League, helping Milan to the League title and leading a wild run to the Champions League semi-finals.

Given Todd Boehly‘s willingness to make large purchases and Tomori’s desire to play a regular role for the England national team, it is thought that Chelsea can afford the £34 million asking price.
