Frank Lampard recently confirmed Chelsea’s intention to send Fikayo Tomori out on loan for at least the remainder of the season. Newcastle United and Rennes are believed to be holding a serious interest in Tomori, but they may not be alone in that regard.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio and Fabrizio Romano, AC Milan have also expressed a desire to sign the 23-year-old. As reported earlier, the Rossoneri’s primary target is Chelsea-linked Mohamed Simakan, but they’re more than happy to sign Tomori in case a move for Simakan doesn’s pan out.

Milan have apparently already contacted Chelsea with regards to this potential transfer, and Tomori is said to be more than happy to join the Serie A league-leaders. However, the move for Simakan will need to “collapse” first, and at the moment, Milan are still working to close the gap with Strasbourg for the France U20 international’s valuation.
While the reports don’t detail the exact nature of Tomori’s potential transfer, it would most likely be a loan move. Although Tomori moving on permanently this month can’t be ruled out just yet.

...but the main target for Milan is still Mohamed Simakan [Strasbourg]. Only if the deal will collapse, Tomori would be the option. #acmilan
