AC Milan Confirm Loan Signing of Fikayo Tomori
Looking for Playing Time
The defender is in need of more playtime and has joined the Italian side to achieve this on a short-term basis.
However, that isn’t to say that he won’t join the Serie A side on a permanent basis at the end of the campaign – with the deal reportedly including a £25 million permanent buy clause for Milan.
Struggled to Break Into the Chelsea Team
It means that if he impresses in Italy, he could stay in the country once the season is done.
The 23-year old has struggled to break into Chelsea’s first-team squad this season, having featured just the once in the league for Frank Lampard’s side.
In a bid for experience and a bid to help him develop as a player, the Blues have enabled the player to get first-team action elsewhere rather than sit on the bench at Stamford Bridge and A.C. Milan have taken that option.
Fikayo Tomori Could Stay at AC Milan if They Trigger Buyout
The Serie A side are battling at the top end of the table and will be hoping his current experience of top-level football for the Blues will help keep them solid defensively and help them continue to battle for the title.
Tomori, who has also had stints across the Football League on various other loan deals, will be hoping to prove to his parent club that he deserves to come back and be in with a chance of first-team football – or at least secure that £25 million buyout to Milan by putting in some impressive showings for the Italian club.
