Since making his debut against Sheffield United, Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has been an ever present in the Chelsea team.

Tomori impressed against Liverpool as he limited Mo Salah and he also impressed as Chelsea beat Brighton 2-0 on Saturday.

Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks has admitted he is impressed with the performances of Tomori.

He also warned England boss Gareth Southgate that Nigeria might approach the defender.

“This lad caught my eye against Liverpool when Mohamed Salah tried to outrun him and Tomori handled the chase comfortably and with gears to spare,” Crooks wrote in his BBC column.

“Needless to say, I was impressed.

“Against Brighton, it was a very different proposition, but Tomori looked composed and comfortable like a player who is going places.

“I hear the Nigerians have their eye on this talent and the Super Eagles’ pulling power is not to be underestimated.

“England manager Gareth Southgate should not take Tomori’s England age group appearances for granted.”
