Minutes have been hard to come by for the Chelsea academy product this campaign, with Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma having formed a stable partnership at the heart of the defence.
Milan were ‘pushing closer’ to a deal in the past few days as per sources in Italy, after Chelsea gave the green light for Tomori to depart temporarily.
