Fikayo Tomori offered to AC Milan from Chelsea as per Fabrizio Romano and former defender Paolo Maldini.
The Rossoneri are keen on improving their defensive department with his inclusion. And the 23-year-old center-back is currently facing a lack of playing time at the Blues feeds fuel to the transfer rumors.
The rumors of him being linked to the club are finally coming true as Tomori could get more playing time now. Tomori has scored two goals in 27 appearances for the London side. His contract expires in June 2024.
AC Milan looking for a perfect defender like Fikayo Tomori
Fikayo Tomori has been a crucial player for Chelsea in terms of defending as well as scoring goals. Tomori played as a late substitute in the 4-0 FA Cup win against Morecambe and Frank Lampard was sure about his loan deal.
However, the Italian Giants might loan him as per Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Legendary Defender Paolo Maldini, who is now the Technical Director of AC Milan, is interested in bringing him to Italy. However, Maldini also expressed how fickle the current stage of negotiations is and how it could fall through.
“It’s very close, we’re in between confirming his signing and not signing him at all, it could all break down with just one detail. We saw in him the quality to throw him into the mix with our current defenders, so that’s why we want him.”– Paolo Maldini on the possibility of signing Tomori on loan.
The Milan side would be greatly benefitted through this deal as they are looking to maintain their lead in the top. Stefano Pioli’s side would be looking to win their 19th Serie A title after 10 years.
They would be keen on returning to where they belonged – The UEFA Champions League!
An experience with a title-contending team would be a better experience as compared to playing in Chelsea. The Blues are struggling at 8th place and are almost out of the Premier League title race. The pressure on Lampard is building up.
