After another impressive performance in the AC Milan backline, Stefano Pioli has confirmed the club’s plans for Fikayo Tomori.

AC Milan plan to sign Fikayo Tomori on a permanent deal from Chelsea at the end of the season.

The 23-year-old joined Milan in January on loan upon falling out of favor at Chelsea. He has since impressed Pioli and his coaching staff with his smooth transition into Italian football.

Tomori even had Cristiano Ronaldo in his pocket throughout the Rossoneri’s 3-0 win over top-four rivals Juventus on Sunday, and he scored a header in what was his first goal for the club.

Therefore, to nobody’s surprise anymore, Milan plan to activate the €28m buy option on the defender.

“We want to buy Tomori on a permanent deal from Chelsea,” said Milan boss Pioli as per Football-Italia.

“Our intention is clear and also Fikayo’s decision (staying at Milan). We’ll see what happens at the end of the season.”

Tomori hasn’t publicly announced his future plans yet, but he is enjoying life in Milan and already feels at home.
