The Chelsea midfielder has rarely played for his side in 2020 and is now looking for a move away to a club he can be a regular starter.

AC Milan

are interested in acquiring the

Chelsea

defender

Fikayo Tomori

’s services and they are racing for signing as many other clubs in England and abroad including

Newcastle

and

Leeds

are eyeing the 23-year-old. However, their preference is a loan deal and the Italian giants are looking for a permanent deal.

Milan’s priority has been Mohamed Simakan but Strasbourg are hoping for a club-record fee, with

RB Leipzig

also attracted to a deal.

Tomori has no problems with a move overseas since he considered joining Rennes in the summer transfer window, with him keen on departing as he has not featured for the Blues since September. Frank Lampard expressed his allowance on the versatile defender’s leave.

In the clash against

Morecambe

in the FA Cup which came down to a thumping 4-0 victory for the Blues, Tomori made and appearance after three months and Lampard said: "

The situation with Fikayo is open at the moment, in that he could be going on loan to get games

.

"

But that will have to be the right decision for him and the club. So while I was looking at starting him today, I was also looking at that (the potential for a loan move), and we've got to make the right decisions for us, for the club and for him.

"His attitude has been fantastic in terms of working, training every day and how he is."

Tomori’s leave will mean that Antonio Rudiger, who also has worries over not being played very often, stays in west London this month. However, the departure of Kepa Arrizabalaga and Marcos Alonso is allowed by Chelsea. Due to the Covid-19 crisis, many European top clubs are facing economic problems in this month’s transfer window.
