He has received rave reviews from club legend Paolo Maldini, as they fight for the Serie A title.

But due to the coronavirus pandemic, AC are struggling financially and are looking to negotiate lowering the fee.

His permanent move will depend on whether the club qualify for the Champions League next season.

And Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has been keeping tabs on the ex-Derby ace and mulling over his plans for him in the coming years.

Earlier this season, Maldini said: ““Fikayo is a player with particular characteristics, pace and intensity.

“From a physical standpoint we believe he’s a guy who can make the difference.

“He has this ability to be aggressive and defend in a back four. Football is headed more and more in the direction of teams playing man to man.

“Within that, though, it’s still important to stay compact and not lose your shape. Tomori is able to do both of these things very well.”

Meanwhile, AC Milan could put Alessio Romagnoli up for sale this summer to raise much-needed transfer funds.
