Nigeria born England international Fikayo Tomori is on the verge of signing a new long-term contract to prolong his stay with Italian side AC Milan.
The 24-year-old, who has three caps for England, is said to have agreed a new five-year deal at the San Siro – to ward off interest from the Premier League.
Tomori has been in impressive form since joining Milan from Chelsea, and, according to The Times, will now be rewarded with a stellar new contract at the club.
Tomori signed for Milan in January 2021, initially on loan, before making the deal permanent that summer.
The £24m they forked out for him now seems a bargain, with the central defender putting in a number of stellar dis.s at the back for the Italian champions during his 18 months at the club.
Tomori started England’s Nations League draw with Italy earlier in the summer and has his eyes set on a World Cup spot when the tournament takes place in Qatar later this year.

England have struggled for options in central defence, so the opportunity is t. for Tomori to stake his claim.
The defender struggled for minutes at Chelsea under former manager Frank Lampard and joined Milan in search of first-team football.
The move paid off, and he is now one of Europe’s hottest prospects and has reportedly gained significant interest from several clubs in England.
The deal is set to see a significant increase in Tomori’s wages, with Milan keen to keep their star man after already losing Franck Kessie to Barcelona this summer.
The Italian side are also reportedly interested in Chelsea forward Hakim Ziyech, but are unable to match the Moroccan’s wage demands.
