AC Milan have reportedly been told by Chelsea that they will have to pay £26m if they wish to sign defender Fikayo Tomori this summer.
Tomori has impressed since sealing a loan move to the Serie A giants in January, after making 11 appearances for the Rossoneri.
Goal reports that a £26m option to buy the 23-year-old was agreed between both Chelsea and Milan, but the Italians would have to pay the full fee if they wish to sign him on a permanent deal.
Milan sporting director and club legend Paolo Maldini recently confirmed that the club will attempt to make the Englishman’s loan transfer a permanent move this summer.
Tomori made only four appearances under former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, after falling down the pecking order following the arrival of Brazilian centre-back Thiago Silva.
Thomas Tuchel has since replaced Lampard, but Tomori had already started making a name for himself in the Italian top-flight and is now considering staying in Milan beyond this season.
