Chelsea are reportedly bracing themselves for bids for Fikayo Tomori, as AC Milan want to strike a deal for less than the defender's £25m buy option.

Chelsea are reportedly bracing themselves for bids from AC Milan for centre-back Fikayo Tomori in the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old failed to break into the team under Frank Lampard during the early stages of the 2020-21 season, but he has had no such problems becoming a consistent starter at Serie A high-flyers AC Milan.

Tomori has appeared from the first whistle eight times in Serie A and four times in the Europa League for the Rossoneri, who have made no secret of their desire to keep him on the books permanently following his successful loan spell.

According to The Sun, Chelsea are now prepared for bids from AC Milan this summer, as the cash-strapped San Siro giants are unlikely to consider triggering his option-to-buy clause.

The report adds that Tomori would be sold for a figure of £25m if Milan were able to cough up the fee, but the Rossoneri are keen to strike a deal for a lower figure, although a permanent stay will depend on whether Milan qualify for the Champions League.

Tomori has made 14 appearances in total for Stefano Pioli's side this season, and his contract at Chelsea is due to expire at the end of the 2023-24 season.
