AC Milan will reportedly decide in May whether to sign Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori on a permanent deal during this summer’s transfer window.
The 23-year-old joined Milan on loan in January and has been an important player for the Italian giants since his arrival, making 11 appearances in all competitions.
A recent report claimed that the Serie A outfit have been delighted with Tomori’s performances, while Chelsea regret allowing him to leave in the winter window.
Milan will be able to sign the centre-back on a permanent basis for €28 million (£23.9m) this summer.
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, a final decision from the club will be made in May.
“AC Milan are ‘so happy’ with Fikayo Tomori impact and performances – the board will decide in May on the €28m buy option,” Romano posted on his official Twitter account.
The England international has made 27 first-team appearances for Chelsea.
