Football Transfers reports that Chelsea FC is showing interest in re-signing Fikayo Tomori from AC Milan. With Thiago Silva‘s future at Chelsea looking uncertain, Tomori, who emerged from Chelsea’s academy, is seen as a potential replacement for the seasoned Brazilian center-back.

Timori open to Premier League return

Since his £26 million move to AC Milan in 2021, Fikayo Tomori has become a key figure in Italian football. His significant contributions helped Milan clinch the Serie A title in the 2021/2022 season. Milan also achieved a semi-final berth in the previous Champions League campaign.

A May report from 90min suggested Tomori’s openness to a Premier League return. He believes this move could enhance his chances of securing a regular spot in the England national team.

Tomori’s contract with AC Milan extends until 2027. Moreover, his £34 million valuation by Transfermarkt, marks him as a valuable asset for the Italian club.

Chelsea’s Defensive Reinforcement Strategy

Despite significant investments in center-backs under Todd Boehly‘s consortium, Chelsea’s defensive line still faces challenges. They invested in Wesley Fofana, Benoit Badiashile, Axel Disasi, and Ishe Samuel-Smith after the departure of Kalidou Koulibaly to Al-Hilal. The team has conceded 16 goals in the current season, underlining the need for defensive reinforcement.

With Thiago Silva’s future at Chelsea unclear, the club’s management is considering a summer transfer bid for Tomori. His stint in Serie A, coupled with an impressive performance in the Champions League, is viewed as ideal preparation for the Premier League.

Tomori’s goal is to be a regular in the England squad. Chelsea is keen to reintegrate him into their defense to align with his goal. With Todd Boehly’s investment capacity, the reported £34 million valuation seems attainable for Chelsea. Thus potentially paving the way for Tomori’s return.

Chelsea supporters are closely following the developments regarding Tomori’s potential comeback. His return could significantly bolster Chelsea’s defense and align with their aspirations in domestic and international competitions. The upcoming months will be crucial in determining if this reunion between Chelsea and their former academy player materializes.
