AC Milan are all set to buy Fikayo Tomori outright from Chelsea and he could be joined by a former team-mate, a report claims.
According to MilanNews, the Rossoneri management will strengthen the squad in attack in view of next season, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be joined by another striker following Mario Mandzukic’s departure. That is why Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud has emerged as a potential option, as the French striker’s deal is about to expire and it represents an opportunity for Milan on a free transfer. There are also other names on the wish list, but talks are ongoing between the parties.
The same source reports that Milan are increasingly convinced by the idea of signing Fikayo Tomori, who is on loan from Chelsea with an option to buy set at €28m. Milan in the next few days will pay the money needed to keep him in the squad with the coach, management and ownership all convinced that the Englishman must be kept.
