Chelsea Defender Fikayo Tomori’s loan move to Milan is a done deal as the Rossoneri have accepted Chelsea’s conditions for the defender’s transfer.
The 23-year-old is expected to join the Serie A leaders on loan until the end of the season and Milan will have an option to make his move permanent for €30m next summer.
The Rossoneri tried to lower the fee, but Chelsea insisted the deal could only be finalised by including a high option to buy.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports Milan have not agreed to Chelsea’s terms yet, but they are expected to do so soon as they want to give Stefano Pioli a new defensive reinforcement as soon as possible.
Tomori has been restricted to just one substitute appearance in the Premier League this season.
The arrival of Thiago Silva in the summer has pushed him down the pecking order, with Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen also ahead of him.
Milan are keen to bring Tomori in to boost their Serie A challenge in the second half of the campaign and have been encouraged by Chelsea’s willingness to let him go.
