According to multiple reports, Italian Serie A heavyweight AC Milan are seriously considering doing whatever it takes to conclude the permanent signing of Chelsea loanee defender Fikayo Tomori. The young central defender joined Milan on a season-long loan last summer and has been a shining star for the side since his move.
He has been very solid at the back and has slotted into the team so easily. With how well he has been playing for the side, anyone watching him would think he has been at the club for a couple of years now. His fine performances have not gone unnoticed, though, as both the club president and the manager have publicly stated that they would love to keep hold of the defender because of how good he is.
Tomori left Chelsea when Frank Lampard was still in charge of the Blues as their manager because he was not getting enough game time given that he was behind Kurt Zouma, Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen, and Rudiger in the pecking order.
However, with Thomas Tuchel now in charge at the helm, it remains to be seen whether the England international defender would be given a shot to prove that he is capable of becoming a starting central defender at Stamford Bridge.
But with how much of a good season he is having in Italy, coupled with the fact that he is already welcomed by everyone at the club, he could be convinced to shun a return to Chelsea and just continue his career at Milan where he has now found a rhythm to his football.
Milan’s president said earlier this week that the club have gotten in touch with Chelsea and discussions are currently ongoing about a permanent transfer of the defender, stating that he would do anything to ensure that they seal the move.
