Report: AC Milan now inquiring about 10 assist Chelsea gem, option if Tomori deal fails
AC Milan have made contact with Chelsea about the possibility of taking Tino Livramento off their hands if they cannot secure Fikayo Tomori.
According to Goal, Milan are lining up potential alternatives if they fail to land Tomori on a permanent deal.
Although it looks highly likely they will sign the defender, the Serie A side want to have a backup plan just in case.
In this instance, they have fallen up Livramento.
The 18-year-old was recently named Chelsea’s Academy Player of the Year for his fine contribution towards the U21’s.
His campaign included providing ten assists and scoring three times from 26 games, mainly as a right-winger or right-back.
He has trained with Thomas Tuchel’s team on a handful of occasions and twice made it onto the bench for a Premier League match.
However, there are apparent concerns from the player himself that he won’t be able to break into the senior squad next season.
Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta are first choice in terms of the right-wing back/ right-centre back role.
Goal state that several clubs are keeping an eye on Livramento, with a loan move possibly in the making.
Alongside the teenager and Tomori, Milan are also plotting to make an offer for Olivier Giroud.
Chelsea’s French forward runs out of contract next month, with no indication of a earning an extension.
