Fikayo Tomori is expected to join the Rossoneri this week, with Andrea Conti going to Parma.
Milan are moving fast on the mercato this week: after signing Soualiho Meïté and closing the deal for Mario Mandžukić, the Rossoneri look set to bring a reinforcement for the defense.
Mohamed Simakan of Strasbourg was the top choice of the Diavolo but after the injury of the Frenchman, who will be out for the next 2 months, Milan turned their eyes towards Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori.
The 23-year-old Englishman, who played just 4 games this season in all competitions, is out of favor with the Blues but Paolo Maldini & Frederic Massara believe he can be a good addition to the squad of Stefano Pioli and give more cover to Alessio Romagnoli and Simon Kjær.
According to Milannews.it and Sky Sports in England among others, an agreement has been reached today between Milan and Chelsea: Tomori is ready to join the Diavolo on loan with option to buy. The figures are reportedly €1m for the loan and €29m for the buy-out option. Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky reports that Milan are hopeful they can finalize and conclude the deal on Tuesday.
While Tomori is ready to come to strengthen the defense, Andrea Conti looks set to leave: as reported by Di Marzio TMW and Sportitalia – Milan and Parma have come to an agreement over Conti: the player should join them on loan with an obligation to buy for €7-8 million.
Conti will most likely be called-up for tomorrow’s game against Cagliari due to the absences of Milan in defense but already on Tuesday could have his Parma medical, according to Di Marzio.
