Fikayo Tomori is another Chelsea academy graduate who made his way into the Chelsea first-team under Frank Lampard. Tomori was given plaudits for his assertive style of defending, however, his opportunities in the starting lineup became limited as Lampard put his trust in more experienced members of the squad in the hopes of securing a Champions League spot.
Tomori secured a loan move to AC Milan midway through last season and impressed so much so that Milan signed him permanently over the summer, and he now plays often for the Serie A giants.
The Canadian-born defender is now a regular in Milan’s backline, even at one point keeping out their captain, Alessio Romagnoli, in the starting XI. There is plenty of competition in the centre-back position for England as they operate with three, but Tomori’s athleticism and confidence on the ball should keep him in Southgate’s plans for the upcoming World Cup.
Tomori England odds are priced at 2/1 to make the World Cup squad.
