Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is being chased by England, Nigeria and Canada.

Tomori, who was born in Canada to Nigerian parents, but the family moved to England when he was a baby, is eligible to play for all three countries.

Tomori has played for Canada’s U20 team as well as England’s Under 20 and Under 21 teams.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has urged Tomori not to worry about the country he would play for at the moment but concentrate on playing regularly for Chelsea.

Lampard said: “It’s his choice. I wouldn’t tell him where to play internationally.

“But he’s played for [England] Under-21s and if he continues with his form and keeps improving then of course I would expect there to be potential for England if Gareth chooses to select him.

“He shouldn’t worry about it at the minute.

“He should just worry about how he’s playing every game or how he trains every day and that will be a nice problem for him, hopefully, if he’s eligible for three.

“He can chose which one he wants.”
