Fikayo Tomori has officially come to Milan until the end of the season.

Milan have been looking for a central defender to strengthen the department and they got their hands on Tomori.

Negotiations between the Rossoneri and the Blues progressed well over the last days and today Fikayo arrived in Milano and signed the contract with the Diavolo.

“Milan is delighted to announce the signing of Oluwafikayomi Oluwadamilola Tomori on loan from Chelsea FC until the end of the season. The defender has signed a contract until June 30, 2021, but Milan have an option to make the deal permanent,” a statement on the website reads.

“Tomori was born in Calgary (Canada) on December 19, 1997. He spent his youth career at Chelsea and made his Premier League debut with the London-based club in 2016. Between January 2017 and June 2019, Tomori played for Brighton (10 appearances), Hull City (26 appearances) and Derby County (55 appearances and 2 goals) before returning to Chelsea, where he registered 27 appearances and 2 goals. Born in Canada, he became a British citizen through naturalization. Tomori played 3 games for the Canada Under-20 team before deciding to represent England internationally – he was part of the England Under-20 team that won the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2017 and made his debut for the England senior side in November 2019.

“The defender will wear the number 23 jersey.” According to Sky Italia, the buy-out option for Tomori is set at £25m (€28.2m). He’ll try to impress Milan enough to use their option.

Best part is if it doesn’t work we can resume Simakan chase or get Milenkovic at cut price deal, due to his contract entering its final year.

reading Chelsea’s blog, they seem upset by this move. He had good performances and suddenly he was down the pecking order. Behind T.Silva, Rudiger and Cristennsen. Most comments there say Silva is getting up there in age, Rudiger stinks and Cristennsen is good but has lapses.

We will see if they are right to be mad. — They are always mad at milan because we always go for loans and like with baka, dont put up the cash. lol

I don’t know why but I really don’t like this deal, I’d rather bet on Gabbia and Kalulu than signing this dude but I’m 100% certain that the managements won’t redeem this deal after his six months

Why are you being such hot and cold. One day you would be optimistic, and another you would lose your sense. Come on, he comes on loan and as @ashraf says, we don’t hv player like him in the squad. Strong, fast, and aggressive

thing is gabbia looks like his injury woes are a little serious than we think it is.. he’s been out for a while now. We definitely needed this signing. If Kjaer is injured we are basically fu*ked. Kalulu is good but he struggles with tall physical strikers. Tomori is a quick and strong but will have to develop more.

Overall its worth the money.

I’m a little concerned too. As you rightly say Gabbia and Kalulu are good young players to give playing time when Roman and Kjaer need rest.
Why give that opportunity to someone elses player?
Also we still have Mussachio, I think there are bigger priorities like RW.

It’s always best to develop homegrown players who are loyal to the club.

I see people still questioning the signings.
I don’t understand this.
Do they forget that Milan still playing in 3 competitions with almost 3 games a week?
Do they forget that the world is still in pandemic, who knows who’s in the squad will get covid again? (I hope nobody will)
Do they forget that people can get injured or suspension also?
