Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is reportedly being eyed by Italian giants AC Milan.
Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano claims Milan have ‘contacted Chelsea’ and the 23-year-old ‘would accept’ the move.
But the player is seemingly second-choice for the Rossoneri with Strasbourg’s Mohamed Simakan top of their list.
Frank Lampard is keen for the 15-cap England U21 international to head out to get some first-team action.
Tomori has made just four appearances this season – the latest being a 10-minute cameo in the FA Cup win over Morecambe.
A string of Premier League clubs, including Leeds and Newcastle, are reportedly interested.
Lampard said: “The situation with Fikayo is open at 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.”
Tomori was a key part of Lampard’s Derby team in the 2018/19 Championship campaign.
He snubbed a move to West Ham on summer transfer deadline day to fight for a spot at Stamford Bridge.
