AC Milan have been pleased with Fikayo Tomori’s impact but admit their option to purchase the centre-back from Chelsea is ‘very high’.

The 23-year-old struggled to secure a regular role under Frank Lampard this season and was allowed to leave the club in the January transfer window.

AC Milan signed Tomori on loan for the remainder of the season and have the option to buy him this summer for €30 million (£26m).

‘The boy has proved to be strong, he integrated well,’ AC Milan’s sporting director Frederic Massara told DAZN.

‘We are convinced of his qualities, there is a very high option to buy and we will evaluate whether to go on but we are very satisfied with his impact so far and we are happy to have him with us.’

Tomori’s current contract with Chelsea expires in June 2024.

Speaking last week, AC Milan’s technical director, Paolo Maldini, also stressed that Tomori’s clause is ‘very high’.

‘Tomori is a good talent and we have a buy-option clause,’ Maldini told Sky Italia.

‘The price is very high. AC Milan will decide at the end of this season and we will discuss it with Chelsea’s board.’

Tomori has made seven appearances in all competitions since joining AC Milan earlier this year.
