Arsenal Shows Interest In AC Milan’s Fikayo Tomori

Fikayo Tomori

During that summer, Tomori’s move to the Rossoneri became permanent for £27.2m.

Throughout his inaugural complete season at San Siro, the English international played a pivotal role in aiding Milan to secure their first Serie A title in 11 years.

From 129 appearances in the famous red and black strip, Tomori has scored six goals and provided one assist, including three goals from 22 matches in all tournaments in the 2023-24 season.

The former Blues youth product has missed Milan’s last two games with a hamstring injury, which is expected to sideline him for the next two months,

 

 

but according to FootballTransfers, Arsenal are keen to bring him back to London despite his layoff.

Gunners manager Mikel Arteta is believed to have personally identified Tomori as an ideal addition to his rearguard ranks,

although Arsenal’s interest is yet to advance beyond the monitoring stage.

Bayern Munich are also rumoured to be keeping close tabs on the 26-year-old,

but Arsenal seemingly hold the edge in the transfer battle with the Bavarians given that Tomori grew up in a family of Gooners.

However, Milan tied Tomori down to a new long-term contract in the summer of 2022,

and those terms still have three-and-a-half-years left to run, leaving the Rossoneri in a strong negotiating position.

The report claims that Milan are “reluctant” to part ways with Tomori given his importance to the team and strong form before his injury, but a January move is seemingly off the cards anyway given his recent hamstring problem.

Arsenal could make a move for Tomori’s signature at the end of the season, though,

especially with the future of Jakub Kiwior up in the air as the Poland international continues to play a bit-part role at the Emirates.
