While Milan have been looking for a defender in recent weeks, they might soon receive a bid for one of their own, as Bayern Munich have Fikayo Tomori in their crosshairs. The center-back is currently on the mend with a serious thigh injury. He might not return till March.
According to Sky Sport Deutschland (via OneFootball), the Bavarians gathered info about the Englishman. He’s high on their shortlist to strengthen their defense. They are mulling about whether to make an attempt in January considering he’s currently on the mend.
Given their emergency and his importance, Milan are unlikely to sell Tomori, but it might hinge on how much Bayern Munich offer. He had played in almost every game, scoring three times, before going down.
The Rossoneri paid 31M to acquire the 26-year-old from Chelsea in July 2021. The Bavarians have also been linked with another of their aces, Mike Maignan. The extension talks with him are reportedly quite challenging.
Our Take on Milan, Bayern Munich, and Tomori
It’s improbable anything will happen in the present window. The Italian club is already in a big hole with all their injuries and Malick Thiaw and Pierre Kalulu’s timetables are uncertain too. Even though they’d get a large sum, signing superb players in January is arduous. On the other hand, none of their pillars can be considered truly untouchable after what happened with Sandro Tonali. Still, the proposal needs to be humongous.
