Chelsea of England defender, Fikayo Tomori has joined outgoing Stamford Bridge teammate, Kenneth Omeruo in being linked with a summer move to Hull City.
Though The Tigers have since cooled interest in Omeruo, reverse appears to be the case for Tomorri, who is now attracting vibrant talk about a possible move to the club that once had fellow-Nigerians, Austin Okocha and Sone Aluko.
The report out of England indicates that Tomori is being linked with an exit from Chelsea before the close of the transfer window, and The Tigers’ Den appears to be his next port of call.
The ambitious English Championship outfit are said to be runaway favourites for the signature of the England under-20 international, who was part of their Junior World Cup-winning squad earlier this year.
Tomori, who has been transformed into a right wing-back by Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte in pre-season, is expected to join a Championship club in the event that his parent club sign more players this summer.
The Canadian-born defender was left out of the Community Shield squad despite first-choice right wing-back Victor Moses suspended for Saturday’s game versus Burnley, and this has fueled speculation that he is not in the plans for the first team.
Only on Thursday, Tomori was part of the non-bib wearing team during training, which indicates that he is set to be omitted from the starting line-up against The Clarets.
The 2016 Chelsea Academy Player of the Year spent the second half of last season on loan at Premier League new boys Brighton.
