Chelsea Transfer News: AC Milan to make Fikayo Tomori deal permanent

According to transfer news from Mirror, AC Milan are keen on keeping Chelsea loanee Fikayo Tomori on a permanent basis. The Italian giants are impressed so much with him that they are willing to sell Alessio Romagnoli to generate the funds to pay the Blues.

Tomori has become the toast of AC Milan as his employers are lavishing praises on him. The Serie A giants have been impressed with his performances. Despite impressing with a good start to his Chelsea career, his form fizzled out soon last season. Tomori found game time hard to come by towards the end of Frank Lampard’s reign.

With the arrival of Thiago Silva, Tomori was sidelined as Kurt Zouma and Silva were preferred ahead of the English starlet. AC Milan came for his services in January and took him on loan until the end of this season. However, they hold a €28m to-buy clause, which they can choose to exercise at the end of the season. Chelsea are said to be regretting the decision to loan him out.

The stance from Milan is clear. They are impressed with his performances and want to sign him on a permanent deal. However, it is rather surprising to see them willing to sell Romagnoli, who is the club captain, in order to generate funds for Tomori. The on-loan Chelsea man and Simon Kjaer have been the first-choice defensive duo at the club.

It looks very likely that Tomori has no future at Chelsea if he returns from Milan. With his impressive showings for the Italian giants and the general opinion of the club officials, they are very likely to make his stay a permanent one even if they have to pay that much by selling Romagnoli.
