Fikayo Tomori’s signing became a priority for AC Milan in the winter market after they ruled out a move for Mohamed Simakan following the Strasbourg player’s injury setback.
The centre-back has struggled for regular minutes with Chelsea this season, and last week Frank Lampard admitted the Blues could allow the 23-year-old to go out on loan this month.
Over the weekend, we relayed news from Italy that ‘negotiations go on’ between the two clubs for the defender’s loan transfer.
It was also stated the west London club want a €3m loan fee and the option to buy set at €30m, while the Serie A side are trying to lower these figures.
There seems to be progress in the negotiations between the Premier League club and Stefano Pioli’s side, according to Sport Mediaset.
It’s claimed an ‘agreement is practically reached’ with Chelsea to take Tomori on an ‘onerous loan with the right of redemption set at €25m’.
As per the report, ‘only a few details are missing’ and once that’s sorted out, the player will ‘fly’ to Italy to seal his move to the San Siro.
Sport Mediaset state Tomori is expected to arrive in Milan on Tuesday or, at the latest, by Wednesday.
