Fikayo Tomori is being pursued by Everton to come on loan.
The 22 year old defender is being chased by the Toffees to improve their defensive side. With Chelsea having signed defender Thiago Silva, Tomori is sure of not getting any minutes on the field. Tomori is on the lookout for more first team experience – and Everton is offering him that.
Frank Lampard also wants Tomori to get better experience before becoming a regular in the Chelsea starting 11.
Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol spoke regarding Tomori on the Transfer Show: “Fikayo Tomori was on loan at Derby when Frank Lampard was the manager, he was the Player of the Season there and really impressive.
“Then he came back to Chelsea when Lampard was appointed last summer and he started the season really well and looked like a real prospect. He got into the England squad and I remember interviewing him when he made his England debut as well and it looked like he had the world at his feet.
“Then for whatever reason behind the scenes at Chelsea, he didn’t play after February and wasn’t in the picture at all. Chelsea have now signed Thiago Silva, which would seem to suggest that his chances going forward would be further limited.
“But having heard Lampard talk about him in such glowing terms before, I would imagine he’s a player that Chelsea still believe in, it’s just that they feel he needs to go out, develop his career and play more regularly before returning to Chelsea.”
