AC Milan are closing in on signing Fikayo Tomori on a permanent deal from Chelsea following his impressive loan spell at the club.
The 23-year-old England International joined the Serie A giants in January and went on to feature in 17 league games, scoring one goal in a 3-0 win at Juventus.
And now The Guardian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims Milan will complete a £25million deal soon, with the Canada-born defender joining on a five-year deal.
Milan boss Stefano Piolo had already confirmed the club’s desire to sign Tomori permanently, saying earlier this month: ‘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.’
Tomori joined the San Siro outfit having played just one Premier League game in the first half of the 2020-21 season for the Blues.
