Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori joined AC Milan on a loan deal in January and his decision to temporarily move to Italy is paying dividends.

The centre-back is enjoying regular minutes, something he failed to have with the Blues in the first half of the season.

Tomori has made seven appearances, which includes five starts, in all competitions for the Rossoneri since moving to the San Siro.

Stefano Pioli’s side retain an option to make his’s stay permanent and their technical director, Paolo Maldini, admitted earlier this week the redemption price set is “very high”.

Reports in Italy have stated the Serie A side will try to convince the London club to lower the defender’s asking price since they are ‘absolutely considering’ buying the 23-year-old.

The Chelsea owned player was an unused substitute in his side’s 1-1 draw against Udinese on Wednesday and prior to kick-off, Milan sporting director Frederic Massara was asked about Tomori.

“The boy proved to be strong. He has integrated well and we are convinced of his qualities,” Massara told DAZN, as relayed by Milan Live.

“Certainly, there is a very high right of redemption that we will evaluate in the future. But we are absolutely happy with Fikayo’s performance.”
