Report: AC Milan eye raid on Chelsea for Valentino Livramento
AC Milan have asked Chelsea about the possibility of signing young prospect Valentino Livramento this summer, according to Goal.
The famous Italian giants are set to conclude a deal to sign Fikayo Tomori on a permanent basis.
Now, the club are planning a raid on Chelsea again to sign the talented teenager.
Livramento is out of contract in two years and Milan hope to take advantage of the situation.
The right midfielder was on the bench twice under Thomas Tuchel as the season drew to a close.
He spent the majority of his time last season playing for the under-23 ranks.
He scored three goals and claimed an impressive 10 assists during the 2020/21 campaign.
Now Chelsea find themselves in a difficult position as they weigh up what to do with their talented performer.
He is clearly knocking on the door of the first-team and that might well persuade him to stay.
It could depend on what business Tuchel does during the summer transfer window.
If another wide player is added, Livramento will be pushed further down the pecking order.
Tomori has gone to the San Siro and played regular football and that might tempt the youngster into a similar move.
Livramento to AC Milan: Chelsea must keep hold of future star
Tuchel has done tremendous things at Chelsea already and the future looks really bright on his watch.
Although they lost the FA Cup Final, they tasted victory in the Champions League and are now the kings of Europe.
The last thing the boss wants to do now is to ruin his good work.
Chelsea have huge ambitions but the club has a quality academy and Tuchel will be required to keep unearthing gems.
Livramento has serious potential and putting him in and around the first-team next season might not be a bad idea.
