Chelsea to swap Fikayo Tomori for AC Milan star?

Franck Kessie news

Chelsea interested in Franck Kessie

Chelsea could reportedly include Fikayo Tomori as a makeweight to sign Franck Kessie from AC Milan this summer.

Tomori left the Blues for the Rossoneri on loan last month and the club have the option to buy him for £25m.

According to Sky Sport Italy, the Blues have an interest in Kessie, whose contract with the Rossoneri expires in 17 months' time.

The Ivorian has impressed this term with seven goals and three assists from 21 appearances from the midfield positions.

He has yet to commit to a new contract and there are suggestions that they could sell him when the transfer window reopens.

The Blues are said to be long-term admirers of the 24-year-old and it is claimed that they may offer Tomori as part of the deal for Kessie.

Tomori fell completely out-of-favour under former manager Frank Lampard and the Blues don't have the control over his future anymore.

The Rossoneri are expected to sign him on a permanent basis but it remains to be seen whether the Blues can take advantage to discuss a swap deal.
