According to reports, Italy’s league leaders AC Milan have enquired about the loan availability of Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard confirmed after Chelsea’s 4-0 FA Cup victory over Morecambe that the 23 year old could leave Chelsea on loan in January.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, AC Milan are keen on signing Tomori and have approached Chelsea about a possible loan deal which Tomori would be open to.

Strasbourg defender Mohamed Simakan is reportedly Milan’s first choice as Stefano Pioli’s side look to bolster their defence for their Serie A title charge.

AC Milan will reportedly push to sign Tomori if they fail to sign Simakan from Strasbourg.

Speaking after the FA Cup win over Morecambe, Lampard said: “The situation with Fikayo is open about the moment. There is a possibility he could be going on loan to get games somewhere else.

“So that would have to be the solution for him and the club. That was part of my thinking of not starting him today.”
