Milan are in urgent need for a defensive reinforcement by the weekend but bureaucracy is causing some delays.

Fabrizio Romano is reporting that AC Milan have scheduled the medicals for Chelsea centre back Fikayo Tomori on Friday as there is a total agreement between the clubs on the transfer. The deal will be a loan with an option to buy for 30 million euros.

Pietro Balzano Prota is reporting that the deal is done and echoes the transfer will be a loan with an option to buy but states the buyout option will be between 25-30 million euros.

Nicolo Schira is reporting that there is a small delay in the transfer due to new bureaucratic issues arising from Brexit. Tomori will be the first non-EU British player transferring to Italy since Brexit became official this month hence there is an adjustment period to the new processes.

The idea is for Milan to have Tomori as part of the squad to face Atalanta on Saturday as Milan's defence is diminished with Alessio Romagnoli serving a suspension and Simon Kjaer has not fully recovered from his injury. This leaves only Pierre Kalulu and Mateo Musacchio as the fully fit centre backs available for the game.
