Chelsea are set to make a big profit from the sale of Fikayo Tomori.

The 23-year-old, who progressed from the club’s youth ranks at Chelsea, joined Serie A giants AC Milan on loan during the second half of last season.

Tomori made 22 appearances in all competitions for Milan, making a strong impression during his short loan spell.

During the 2019-20 campaign, Tomori impressed under Frank Lampard in the first half of the campaign, where he made 15 Premier League appearances.

He is a player with huge potential, but Chelsea are prioritising the financial side. Milan are offering a sum of €28m, and they are expecting to secure him permanently.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that Tomori will sign a long term contract with the seven-time European champions.

Tomori may turn out to be a world-class defender in the future, but it’s a win-win situation for all parties involved.

Chelsea are getting a handsome fee that can be reinvested into the squad.

You could argue that Thomas Tuchel should have checked him in pre-season before making the final call, but with Thiago Silva set to sign a new deal, it seems the decision was already made.

Tomori is expected to play regularly and improve with age, while AC Milan are getting a fantastic talent on a long-term deal.

Milan are also interested in signing Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud, and the Rossoneri are in direct talks with the player’s agent.
