FIKAYO TOMORI has agreed a new five-year contract with AC Milan, according to reports.
The former Chelsea star joined the Serie A club permanently 12 months ago after a successful loan spell.
Tomori24, is now ready for a pay rise as Milan tries to fend off Premier League interest.
According to The timesthe central defender reached his new deal late Thursday night.
Milan boss Stefano Pioli was desperate for a deal to keep Tomori in the long run.
Pioli feared his side would be bombarded with Prem interest in their star defender.
Milan legend and technical director Paolo Maldini played a key role in securing a new contract for Tomori.
The Italian giants won the Serie A title last season, with Tomori starting 30 of their 38 games en route to victory.
Another key member of that team, Franck Kessie, went to Barcelona on a free transfer.
The Milan leaders are determined not to lose Tomori in the same way.
He played 27 games for boys’ club Chelsea before being loaned to Milan in January 2021.
After an impressive spell, the Italians exercised their £25million option to buy the deal and made the move permanent.
Milan is chasing further reinforcements this summer.
They have also bolstered their attack by spending £28.8million on Club Brugge’s Belgian prodigy Charles De Ketelaere and taking over Divock Origi on a free transfer from Liverpool.
Pioli and Co are also hoping to capture Chelsea flop Hakim Ziyech, though a deal is proving to be trickier.
The Blues are willing to sell the attacker, although Ziyech is reportedly not interested in a pay cut, with Milan struggling to match his Chelsea salary.
Milan kick off their Serie A title defense by hosting Udinese tomorrow afternoon.
