Tottenham and Manchester United Lay Eyes on Tomori

Fikayo Tomori hasn’t been consistent throughout the season, but his form improved in the key stretch of it. He played a big role in engulfing Napoli and Victor Osimhen in Champions League. His brilliant showings at the continental stage revived interest in his services, but it’s improbable Milan will sell him anytime soon, Calciomercato informs.

Tottenham and Manchester United, in particular, have set sights on the center-back, as they’ll likely retool their rearguard in the summer. A few sides passed on the opportunity to sign him from Chelsea before the Rossoneri brought him to Serie A.

Gareth Southgate snubbed Tomori in his World Cup call-ups, but that should change soon. Steve Holland, a key member of his staff, attended the return leg between Milan and Napoli to take a close look at the 25-year-old ahead of the Euro qualifiers in June.

According to the publication, the Rossoneri will receive some big offers, but it will be arduous to sway them. They paid €30M to onboard the defender, buying him out after an initial loan spell, so the bid would have to be massive for them to register a profit. In addition, the player is keen on staying put long term, as he certified by inking a contract until 2027.

Our Take on Tomori

The lure of the Premier League, and its deep coffers, is always a threat, especially for an Englishman, but he’s currently in an ideal situation. It’ll probably be a few years before he’s tempted to return to his home country, if it ever happens.
