Report: Tomori could be joined at AC Milan by Chelsea teammate after latest update

AC Milan have now put their name forward as one of the many clubs interested in taking Tammy Abraham away from Chelsea.

According to the Evening Standard, Milan are ready to rival the likes of West Ham United and Leicester City to sign Abraham.

Chelsea have set their asking price at around £40m (Evening Standard) for their out of favour striker.

The 23-year-old hasn’t started a match since February, with Thomas Tuchel repeatedly disregarding his services.

As the Blues creep closer to buying a new centre-forward in the summer, it appears increasingly likely Abraham will exit in the opposite direction.

If he were to join Milan, he could potentially be partnering up with Fikayo Tomori.

Tomori has been an enjoying an excellent season on loan with the Italian giants, having been sent away by Frank Lampard in January.

Sky Italia reported that the Rossoneri plan to secure the young defender permanently and will meet the £25m asking price from Chelsea.

He and Abraham would be able to reignite their days as academy products at Cobham.

Of course, West Ham might have a different say in this matter.

David Moyes is also desperate to add name to his attack, especially if the Hammers qualify for Europe.

Leicester too may look for reinforcements, as Jamie Vardy’s career slowly comes to its conclusion.

Abraham is a wanted man; it now depends who can get their cheque book out quickest.
