Italian giants AC Milan have reportedly triggered Fikayo Tomori's release clause at Chelsea.
The defender had a £25 million release clause and having impressed while on loan last season, the Rossoneri are making the deal permanent.
Tomori had a wonderful season in Italy, fitting seamlessly at the back alongside Simon Kjaer and managing 19 appearances in all competitions.
AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli confirmed last month that they were keen on making the move permanent.
“We want to buy Tomori on a permanent deal from Chelsea. Our intention is clear and also Fikayo's decision (staying at Milan).
“We'll see what happens at the end of the season.”
The deal for the 23-year-old includes £5 million in add-ons, which will go into Chelsea's transfer kitty for this summer.
