“For us, that is our next step, to become more competitive on the European front.”

Fikayo Tomori is one of the cornerstones of the current Milan squad. The England international moved to San Siro on an initial loan deal from Chelsea in January 2021 and the Rossoneri made his move permanent six months later.

He was named in the Football Italia Team Of The Year along with Torino centre-back Gleison Bremer.

“Fikayo has been extraordinary throughout the season,” he added. “He is absolutely a pillar of this team.

“He is one of the players we would like to build our team around – and he has been a fantastic addition on and off the field.”

Milan are working on a contract renewal for the England centre-back and according to Football Italia sources, he will be offered a new deal until 2027.
