AC Milan appear to have tied up the signing of Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea and just have to give the green light for it to become official.
Gianluca Di Marzio told Sky last night that the Rossoneri have identified an alternative to Mohamed Simakan, who has sustained an injury that will keep him out for around two months.
The player in question is Fikayo Tomori, who has only made one appearance for Chelsea this season. He added that Milan will have to decide whether to wait for Simakan or move ahead with the English centre-back, who has been secured by the club already.
As reported by Spanish outlet TF, Milan’s interest in Tomori is real and has been going on for a few weeks, and the the 23-year-old would accept a move to Milan without problems.
They add that the former Derby man is a sizeable central defender, with good physical and technical skills. Regarding the formula, it would be a loan for six months – i.e. until the summer – and there has not yet been talk regarding an option to buy.
However, such a deal could benefit Milan as they would strengthen the squad for the rest of the current season and can then wait, in the meantime, for developments on Simakan ‘s recovery.
