Arrived on tiptoe during the January transfer market, Fikayo Tomori took little to take first Milan and then Fantasy Football. The Chelsea-owned central defender surprised everyone by the speed with which he settled into the Italian league and above all by how indispensable he has become for both Pioli and his fantasy coaches.

Milan and Fantasy Football: Tomori is a certainty
Despite general skepticism, Tomori did not take long to convince virtually every one of his strengths. Physical, intelligent, and gifted with a great spirit of sacrifice, the young English defender actually stole the place from captain Romagnoli and ended up becoming a staple of Stefano Pioli for the season finale.
At Fantasy Football he put up important numbers, becoming a certainty for many fantasy coaches who picked him up very soon at the January auction: in 14 appearances Fikayo Tomori took just two shortcomings, scored a goal, and collected 0 yellow cards (not bad for a central defender), all added to an average rating of 6.21 and a phantom average of 6.43. Important numbers for those who found themselves the owner of a big Serie A in a few weeks.
Milan transfer market: what future for Tomori?
The hope, for Milan and for Fantasy Football, is to have him available again next season. The Rossoneri will try to redeem the boy from Chelsea, but around 28 million euros will be needed to convince the Londoners to sell Tomori outright. An important figure, but one that is certainly worth spending given the performance of the boy offered so far.
