AC Milan consider loan move for Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori

Tomori celebrates a stunner at Molineux last season

Milan are reportedly interested in Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori, should the deal with Strasbourg centre-back Mohamed Simakan fall through.

Should Simakan move to Leipzig or elsewhere, then Milan are ready to offer Tomori an 18-month loan deal to move to Italy until the end of next season.

Tomori broke into the Chelsea first team during the opening months of last season but has struggled for opportunities over the past year, failing to start a Premier League fixture during the current campaign and making just four appearances in all competitions.

The Rossoneri have been flying this season, now sitting three points clear at the top of Serie A having lost just once.

Milan are exploring other options and have been alerted to Frank Lampard confirming that Tomori will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge on loan.

Pioli's side beat lowly Torino 2-0 at home even without talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic while Antonio Conte's Inter were denied victory by a late equaliser in their 2-2 draw with Roma.

Tomori is sidelined given the preference of manager Frank Lampard of playing Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma in central defense.

According to reliable journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea centre-back Fikayo Tomori has emerged as a potential target for Serie A leaders AC Milan.

After that game, Lampard said: "The situation with Fikayo is open at the moment, in that he could be going on loan to get games".

'And second, don't lose what you have here [points at head] - you need to think right and look for solutions.

Chelsea have won only one of their last six Premier League matches and have dropped to ninth in the table.
