AC Milan are reportedly preparing to complete a triple summer swoop of Chelsea players Olivier Giroud, Fikayo Tomori and Hakim Ziyech.
Italian newspaper Gazetto dello Sport has reported that Milan are ready to raid Chelsea after finishing second in Serie A last season.
Tomori impressed during his loan spell to the Rossoneri during the 2020/21 season after falling out of favour with ex-Chelsea coach Frank Lampard and moving abroad.
The defender featured 26 times before catching technical director Paolo Maldini's eye, who is eager to retain the youngster.

Meanwhile Ziyech had an underwhelming first season at Stamford Bridge where he struggled to leave a mark despite picking up a Champions League winners’ medal.
The Moroccan’s future in the side under new boss Thomas Tuchel is uncertain with Napoli also being interested in the player.
Giroud is another player who could be off to Italy, despite his contract only recently being extended by Chelsea for another 12 months.
The striker fuelled further speculation linking him to Milan when he claimed it was Chelsea’s decision to activate the contract extension and not his.
Which of Tomori, Giroud and Ziyech is Milan most likely to sign this summer? Let us know in the comments section.
Giroud said: “I want to make it clear that Chelsea reactivated the clause in April.
“And they recently announced it to comply with Premier League rules."
He added: “It’s fair to remember that I liked Marco van Basten and Andriy Shevchenko.
“Milan are a big club and one of the great teams in Europe.
“But today, I will not talk about my future at the club because I am focused on the France team and the Euros, which is fast approaching.”
