AC Milan are reportedly moving closer towards a £25m deal for Chelsea centre-back Fikayo Tomori.
Having struggled to get a look-in under Frank Lampard time as Chelsea boss during the first half of the 2020-21 season, Tomori secured a six-month loan move to San Siro, where he quickly established himself as a first-team regular.
The 23-year-old centre-back made 17 Serie A appearances as Milan secured a return to the Champions League, with manager Stefano Pioli and technical director Paolo Maldini as both confirming their intentions to keep Tomori on the books permanently.
Fabrizio Romano, who is a transfer expert said that, the Rossoneri have agreed to fork out £25m to sign the defender, and he is now set to put pen to paper on a five-year contract in Italy. Meanwhile, There were fears that the blues could be demanding for a high price for Pioli’s side, but it appears that Milan will ultimately land the defender, who would therefore leave Chelsea having scored two goals in 27 appearances.
Despite playing a key role in Milan’s successful push for a second-placed finish in Serie A, Tomori was overlooked for a place in Gareth Southgate’s provisional Euro 2020 squad.
