AC Milan to have £27m option to buy Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea if England international's loan is a success
17th January 2021

AC MILAN have the option to make Fikayo Tomori's loan move permanent in the summer for just £27million, according to reports.

The Serie A league leaders are on the brink of signing the out-of-favour Blues defender, 23, until the end of the season.

Tomori has slipped below Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen under Frank Lampard this season.

Now, reports in Italy claim Milan have the option – but not obligation – to make Tomori's loan move permanent in the summer in a £27m deal.

Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano revealed the latest on Tomori's move.

Romano tweeted: "Fikayo Tomori is set to join AC Milan from Chelsea.

"The agreement is expected to be completed next week on loan with buy option [*no* obligation] around €30m.

"Tomori will fly to Milan in the next few days."

The one-cap England international has played just four times for Chelsea this season, including just one Premier League outing – the 2-0 defeat at home to Liverpool.

Most-recently, he enjoyed a ten-minute cameo in the 4-0 FA Cup third-round win over Morecambe.


After the cup clash, Lampard hinted Tomori was in for a temporary move away.

The Blues boss said: “The situation with Fikayo is open at the moment.

“There is a possibility he could be going on loan to get games somewhere else.

"So that would have to be the solution for him and the club. That was part of my thinking of not starting him.

“I gave him some minutes at the end but while we were looking at that I wanted to make sure it was the right thing for the club and for him and individually. So that’s why he didn’t start.

“But his attitude, even though he hasn’t played much recently, has been fantastic in training and in how he is.”

Tomori – who snubbed a move to West Ham on deadline day last summer – has also been linked with Leeds and Newcastle.
