The deal for the 23-year-old defender includes an option to buy, which would cost the Italian side £26.6m (€30m.)

Milan are strengthening in areas that matter, as they continue to hold strongly to the top of Italy’s Serie A. Tomori would bolster their options at the back before their game against Atalanta at San Siro this weekend.

Tomori, a product of the Chelsea academy, played fantastically well on loan at Derby County even while Frank Lampard was the manager but has struggled for minutes in the Chelsea set up this season, featuring just four times since the arrival of Thiago Silva as a free agent.

Chelsea boss Lampard is a big admirer of Tomori and sees the 23-year-old in his long-term plans at Stamford Bridge.

“He absolutely has a long-term future at this club,” Lampard said earlier this month.

“We’ll see if or when he goes on loan but the moment I got close to Fikayo was when I took him to Derby with me and he was player of the year there and one of the best players in the Championship that year in my opinion.

“He came back here and played 20-plus games for us at a very young age last year and got in the England squad.

“In my head there is an absolute long-term plan for Fikayo about his career here. If it is to go and play games [on loan] it will be to absolutely enhance his personal development and hopefully help whatever team he goes to, because that will go hand in hand, and he will come back to us a better player.”
