Serie A giants AC Milan wants to bring Chelsea FC defender Fikayo Tomori to San Siro on a permanent deal.
The England international is on a season-long loan at Milan and according to Eurosport, the club is preparing to trigger Tomori’s £25m purchase clause to sign him permanently because they feel it is a bargain.
The buy clause that was negotiated as part of his loan deal now looks a steal - and the club have made checks with the player to ensure he is convinced of their situation and that he is willing to commit to his new life in Italy long-term.
The reports state that the level of the player’s performances this season has been so high that data analysts have spent recent weeks encouraging senior recruitment staff to go ahead with a full-time deal.
Since arriving at the club in January, the 23-year-old has played 14 games and the club has been amazed at just how well he has adapted on and off the pitch.
Fikayo Tomori is the first English player to score for AC Milan since David Beckham in January 2009. 🙌 pic.twitter.com/yc3F3TbSHh— Squawka Football (@Squawka) May 9, 2021
