After reported interest from Premier League clubs like Leicester City, West Ham United and Aston Villa, the latest club to show an interest in Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham are AC Milan, as per the Evening Standard.

The report claims that the Rossoneri have been put on alert by the recent rumors surrounding the 23-year-old, and are monitoring his situation ahead of the summer transfer window. The asking price, as reported earlier is £40m, with the funds attained from his sale set to be used by Chelsea to sign a big-money centre forward, with the likes of Erling Braut Haaland and Romelu Lukaku said to be on the wish-list.

Milan’s biggest competitors are likely to be West Ham, with the Hammers keen on Abraham especially if they qualify for next season’s Champions League. Meanwhile, Tammy could well be the second Chelsea Academy product signed by Milan this summer, with the Serie A club also in discussions to keep Fikayo Tomori beyond his current loan.

Speaking of Tomori, Goal and Gazzetta dello Sport report that the young centre back is keen to continue his stay at San Siro — and if Milan qualify for next season’s Champions League, they will certainly not lack the necessary funds to trigger the €28m buy-option. The Rossoneri will probably ask for a discount anyway, but it has already been indicated that Chelsea will not do business below that already very low fee.
