AC Milan contact Chelsea over centre-back Fikayo Tomori

Tomori continues to struggle for action

Fikayo Tomori enjoyed a solid breakout season with Chelsea, notching 22 appearances across all competitions.

As the likes of Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Reece James and more were handed the chance to impress, Frank Lampard appeared to be ushering in a new era at Stamford Bridge.

However, whilst the rest of the aforementioned youngsters have continued to shine under Lampard, Tomori has fallen seriously out of favour.

This comes with Thiago Silva’s addition having taken Chelsea’s central-defensive options to five.

In turn, Tomori has been limited to just four appearances this season – only one of which came in the Premier League, lasting just 45 minutes.

And his latest outing didn’t even see him start against lower-league outfit Morecambe in the FA Cup over the weekend, instead being afforded just 10 minutes of action from the bench.

AC Milan linked with Tomori

Following on from that tie, Frank Lampard suggested that Chelsea would be willing to let the young stopper go out on loan this month.

Newcastle United have previously been tipped to make a move for Tomori this season.

But now a fresh update this week suggested that another club have begun to take an interest in the Chelsea man.

That club is believed to be high-flying Serie A outfit, AC Milan.

According to the reliable Fabrizio Romano, Milan have made contact with the Londoners over a potential move for Tomori, with the defender said to be accepting of a potential San Siro switch.

However, it is added that Milan’s main target is Mohamed Simakan, with a move for Tomori only likely an option should the deal for Simakan collapse:
