Tomori continues to struggle for action

Fikayo Tomori enjoyed a solid breakout season with Chelsea last time out, notching 22 appearances across all competitions.

As the likes of Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Reece James and more were handed the chance to impress, Frank Lampard appeared to be ushering in a new era at Stamford Bridge.

However, whilst the rest of the aforementioned youngsters have continued to shine under Lampard to this point in the current campaign,, Tomori has fallen seriously out of favour.

This comes with Thiago Silva’s summer arrival having taken Chelsea’s central-defensive options to five.

In turn, Tomori has been limited to just four appearances since – only one of which came in the Premier League, lasting just 45 minutes.

His latest showing, meanwhile, came in the form of a 10-minute cameo off the bench in the Blues’ FA Cup drubbing of Morecambe over the weekend.

AC Milan linked with Tomori

On the back of his side’s win over Morecambe, Frank Lampard confirmed that Chelsea would be willing to allow the young stopper to depart on loan this month.

Newcastle United have previously been tipped to make a move for Tomori this month.

Now, though, one of European football’s giants have been named as a potential landing spot for the Chelsea man.

That club in question are high-flying Serie A outfit, AC Milan.

According to the reliable Fabrizio Romano, Milan have made contact with Chelsea over a potential move for Tomori, with the defender said to be keen on the idea of a potential San Siro switch.

However, it is added that the Rossoneri’s main target remains Mohamed Simakan, with Tomori viewed as a backup option as things stand:
