AC Milan signs Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea for £30m.
The Chelsea academy graduate joined Milan on loan in January and the Italian club decided to make the move permanent this summer.
The 23-year old defender moved to San Siro after failing to nail down a starting place at Chelsea last season.
Tomori made 22 appearances for Milan this season and was instrumental in the club’s qualification for the Champions League.
