AC Milan took Fikayo Tomori on a simple loan from Chelsea in January. The deal has an option to buy for €28 million in the summer.

Initially, Stefano Pioli added Tomori in the squad as a backup center-back for the pairing of Kjær and Alessio Romagnoli. However, Tomori’s performances, when he got his chance, earned him a first-team spot.

The 23-year-old English defender is quick, and strong which are the key attributes to be a world-class centre-back. The Rossoneri’s first-choice center-back pairing doesn’t have the recovery pace and because of that, the England International is perfect for Milan.

Chelsea are not dropping Tomori’ price for AC Milan

Milan are willing to buy Tomori in the summer. However, they believe the €28 million is too high and for that, they want to negotiate the price with Chelsea.

Although formal talks are yet to begin it is believed that Chelsea don’t want to negotiate about the price. The Blues believe the asking price is perfect for the highly-rated center-half and they want full €28 million.

The 23-year-old made fifteen appearances last season for Chelsea under Frank Lampard. However, this season he could not break into the starting eleven and was sent on loan to AC Milan. In the San Siro outfit, he has made 11 appearances so far. 

The vision of AC Milan is to regain the European elite title in the near future and for that, they have added a few very highly-rated young players to the squad. The Chelsea man can also be categorized as a player with high potential.

In the early days of the season, Milan was at the top of the league table and seemed that they might go all the way. But inconsistent performances and injury to Zlatan Ibrahimovic put them in the second spot. They are 6 points behind the league leaders and city rivals Inter Milan after playing one extra game. Milan have got 59 points in 28 games.
