Transfer News: AC Milan in the hunt for Chelsea man Fikayo Tomori in the summer
The youngster departed the Blues to join the Serie A side on a 6-month long loan deal in the January transfer window. This was one of the last transfer decisions Frank Lampard made as Chelsea boss.
“We are so happy with Tomori, our plan with him is so clear. We want to confirm Fikayo and our plan is to keep him next season. Let’s see what happens with Chelsea.”
No Chelsea return for Tomori?
These comments come after Tomori’s incredible start to life in Italy. He just had 45 minutes of Premier League action this season before making the move overseas.
His talent has never been in doubt as the 23-year-old was the player of the season for Derby County when the club was managed by Lampard. And this news comes as a blow for Thomas Tuchel who wants defensive reinforcements.
The German gaffer wants to strengthen his backline and Tomori would have been a good solution considering he is already within their ranks. But that buyout clause makes the situation somewhat worrying for the Blues. (h/t Express)
Thiago Silva is not getting any younger and the veteran’s future at Chelsea is surely short-lived. And considering Tuchel uses a 3-man backline, he would surely want good depth in that area.

If Tomori stays in Milan next season, then Chelsea would have to dip into the transfer market to sign a defender. A top target is yet to appear but there are links to Bayern Munich man Niklas Sule. (h/t Express)
