AC Milan enquire about Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori

AC Milan are the latest club to reach out to Chelsea over a possible deal to sign centre-back Fikayo Tomori.

Blues boss Frank Lampard recently confirmed that the club are looking to send Tomori out on loan this month after watching him make just four appearances in all competitions this season - three of which have come in the cup.

The likes of Leeds United and Rennes have been named as potential destinations in recent weeks, and now according to Fabrizio Romano, Milan have thrown their name into the mix as they look to sign a new defender before the close of the window.

Tomori has made it clear that he would have no problems joining Milan, but the Serie A leaders are actually focused on landing Strasbourg's Mohamed Simakan instead and would only turn to Tomori if they miss out on their preferred target.

Gianluca Di Marzio adds that Simakan is pushing to make the move and Milan officials are working tirelessly to land the Frenchman, so it doesn't seem as though Tomori is going to end up at San Siro anytime soon.

However, there is a fun twist in this one, and that's that Chelsea have also been linked with their own move for Simakan this month.
