AC Milan and Chelsea have found a deal for the permanent move of Fikayo Tomori to the Serie A side, according to reports from the Italian media.

Journalist Antonio Vitiello says the clubs reached an agreement ‘in the past hours’ so the defender can stay with the Rossoneri following his loan spell at the San Siro.

There’s no information on how much Milan are spending on the move for now, although that should certainly be out in the Italian media very soon.

The Rossoneri’s efforts to sign Tomori on a permanent deal have been reported by the local press for a few months now. Since joining the club on loan in January this year, he made 22 appearances and had quite convincing performances.

Recent reports had been claiming that Milan wanted to pay less than the €28m buying option which had previously been agreed between the clubs. For the Rossoneri to have agreed the transfer so early, it indeed looks like they’ve managed to get a discount from Chelsea.

Tomori is a product of the Blues’ academy, although he only made 27 appearances for the club. He has, or used to have, a contract with the Stamford Bridge side running until 2024.
