Goal: Details of Tomori operation between Milan and Chelsea plus a profile on the player

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan do not have much of a chance of landing Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea in anything other than a loan deal, a journalist has claimed.

According to what Nizaar Kinsella – the Chelsea correspondent for Goal.com – has told MilanNews, a deal between the two sides for Tomori would be a simple loan, as Frank Lampard does not want to lose him permanently, just as he said in his press conference earlier.

A good offer could make Chelsea’s stance falter, but Kinsella adds that it is very difficult to imagine one arriving in the current window, while the Blues would be happy to loan him.

They believe a lot in the 23-year-old but currently there are a lot of centre-backs in their squad, which is why a temporary solution works best both for club and for player.

Kinsella adds that Tomori is not particularly tough but he is incredibly fast player and one skilled in passing. Technically he is very gifted and can play in both a three-man defence and a four-man back line. He can also be used as a right-back but it is not his strength.
