Reports coming from Italy are suggesting that Italian Serie A giants AC Milan have begun talks with English Premier League side Chelsea for the potential permanent transfer of their defender Fikayo Tomori when the summer transfer window opens for business in the summer, it has been confirmed. Tomori, a young, vibrant defensive star left Stamford Bridge and signed for Milan on loan last summer in a bid to revive his dying career, and it has been working out fine for him.

He has become a major starter for the Italian club and is also one of their most important players this term. The defender had to leave Chelsea as he could not compete with the likes of Andreas Christiansen, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Kurt Zouma for a starting spot at the heart of the Chelsea defense, meaning he had to engineer a temporary exit that would give him more time on the pitch.

He then chose to sign for Milan and it has all been a great idea for him. Tomori has developed into a great central defender in Italy and has become one of the most sought-after young defenders in Europe, thanks to a huge improvement in his game. Reports are now claiming that his current club Milan have started talks with his parent club about a possible permanent transfer that will see him continue his stay in Italy beyond the expiration of his current deal.

Milan manager, Pioli, has once revealed that the club would do anything to keep the defender but stressed that Chelsea would have to be the side with the final say in the deal. According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea will likely demand a fee of around £30 million for the highly talented defender if they want to let him go permanently this summer.
