    Chelsea outcast Fikayo Tomori receives AC Milan loan offer

    AC Milan have made contact with Fikayo Tomori over a potential loan move after Frank Lampard admitted the Chelsea outcast is likely to leave the club during the January transfer window.

    The 23-year-old thrived under Lampard’s tutelage while the pair were together at Derby and the defender continued his progress upon his return to Chelsea last season.

    Tomori made 22 appearances in all competitions and made his senior England debut in November 2019, but did not feature at all over the course of Project Restart and has been on the periphery this term.

    Lampard currently has five central defenders to choose from and with summer signing Thiago Silva an automatic starter, the Chelsea manager has found it hard to give opportunites to Tomori who has four appearances this term.

    The academy graduate was given just 10 minutes as a late substitute in Sunday’s FA Cup third round win over Morecambe, after which his manager admitted a loan move would be of benefit.

    He 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 today.

    ‘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.’

    Leeds United have been linked with a move for Tomori, but AC Milan are the latest club to an express a genuine interest in the player.

    According to Fabrizio Romano, Tomori would be keen on a move to Serie A, but the Milan giants, who currently lead the race for the Scudetto, have identified Strasbourg’s Mohamed Simakan as their primary target.
