Corriere dello Sport are reporting that AC Milan are already looking to buy defender Fikayo Tomori permanently from Chelsea FC after his solid performances. He is being called the only positive signing from the winter transfer window but they note that the transfer may be too expensive for the Rossoneri at the moment.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that Ricky Massara has a meeting scheduled with Chelsea to discuss Tomori and the potential buy out of the defender. Milan are looking to somehow get a discount on the 28 million euro option that is on his current loan deal. Milan are treating him as the priority for the summer as he has impressed in his few games at the club thus far.

Calcio Mercato are separately reporting that Chelsea are not interested in reducing the price tag for the defender as they could see a future for him at Stamford Bridge but the current figure is a bit too high for the Rossoneri. The report notes that Milan could look to fund the deal through some sales.
