Italian giants AC Milan are ready to tie star defender Fikayo Tomori down for the long-term, it has been confirmed.
England international Tomori, of course, has been plying his trade in Italy for a little over 18 months now.
After first swapping west London for Milan on loan in January of 2021, the 24-year-old’s arrival was subsequently made permanent 12 months ago.
And what a decision that has since proven to be.
Stepping into a once gaping hole at the heart of AC Milan’s backline, Tomori has gone on to establish himself as nothing short of a talismanic figure at San Siro.
His stellar efforts this past season proved integral to the Rossoneri’s eventual Scudetto crown, with the Chelsea youth product’s budding partnership alongside Pierre Kalulu potentially set to act as the foundation upon which Milan’s success is built for the best part of the coming decade.
In turn, it should not come as a massive surprise to hear of Milan moving to tie Tomori down for the long-term.
As per Tom Roddy of The Times, the thrice-capped England international has, on Thursday night, agreed to the terms of a new contract in Lombardy.
The deal, set to be signed imminently, is understood to run through the summer of 2027.
