The Telegraph are reporting that AC Milan are almost certainly going to redeem Chelsea centre back Fikayo Tomori this summer following his six month loan. The player has been an undisputed starter and been very impressive.

Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Milan intend to exercise their option to buy him for 28.5 million euros at the end of the season.

Stefano Pioli also confirmed the desire to buy the player permanently after the Juventus game when speaking to the press. He did note that Milan are waiting until the end of the season to take concrete steps.

MilanNews.it are reporting that Tomori has expressed his desire to stay and Milan have every intention to redeem him. Milan are only waiting to close up the Champions League qualification to begin the process.

Calcio Mercato are also reporting that Tomori wants to stay and Milan want to buy him but note that Champions League qualification is key to pull off the deal otherwise it may be too costly for the Rossoneri.
