Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard confirmed after the club’s 4-0 FA Cup win over Morecambe that Fikayo Tomori was set for a loan move away from Stamford Bridge after making just four appearances this season
The 23-year-old has made just four appearances for the Blues this season, and has played just 45 minutes in the Premier League.
Tomori decided against moving on loan to Everton and West Ham in the summer and has also been linked with Leeds and Newcastle since the transfer window reopened.
Lampard said: “The situation with Fikayo (Tomori) is kind of open at the moment.
“There’s a possibility he could be going on loan to get games somewhere else. That would have to be the right solution for him and the club.”
However, Tomori is not believed to be AC Milan’s top target. The Serie A side are also keen on Strasbourg’s 20-year-old defender Mohamed Simakan.
