Fikayo Tomori set to join AC Milan on permanent deal

Chelsea supporters were delighted at the performance of Fikayo Tomori after he made his debut for AC Milan against Inter Milan yesterday.

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is reportedly set to join AC Milan in a permanent £27million deal.

Milan have decided to activate a clause to clinch the defender’s signing after impressing on loan.

And according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan will sign Tomori on a permanent deal.

He will reportedly sign a five-year deal with the Italian side to bring his time at Chelsea to an end.

Tomori’s loan move includes an option to make the deal permanent and Milan have reportedly decided to activate this.

The 23-year-old centre-back has made 16 appearances in all competitions for Milan since joining them on loan in January.

“I’m happy and I have the opportunity to give my best for this team,” he recently said.

“I always want to raise my level.

“Italy is different from England, the weather is good and the food is better.”

Tomori fell out of favour at Stamford Bridge this season after the arrival of Thiago Silva.

But he has hit the ground running in Italy with Milan technical director Paolo Maldini impressed.

Maldini told Sky Sport Italia: “As for Fikayo, he has unique assets of speed, intensity, for us he was a possible reinforcement for the rest of the season.”
