Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is being monitored by Scottish giants Celtic ahead of a possible summer move, according to the Mirror.
The 21-year-old has been one of Derby County’s standout performers this season under former Blues midfielder Frank Lampard, which has caught the eye of Celtic officials.
The Scottish champions are reportedly considering a permanent move for the player, who collected Derby County’s Player of the Year award last month.
The report suggests that the Rams will also consider a move for the player over the summer if they secure promotion against Aston Villa later this month.
Tomori is expected to return to Stamford Bridge over the summer and could be part of Maurizio Sarri’s plans next year, if the Italian remains in charge of the Blues.
The youngster currently has two years left on his Chelsea deal, so Celtic or Derby may have to place a large offer if they are to lure the defender away from Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis.
Four more Chelsea youngsters who have impressed this year
James has caught the eye for Wigan Athletic this season, turning out in both defence and midfield.
Aina was considered to be surplus to requirements with Chelsea, however, the 22-year-old’s impressive loan spell with Torino has placed the full back in contention for a first-team return next season.
Abraham has scored 26 times for Aston Villa this season and could be in line for a Chelsea first-team spot next season as a result.
Tomori’s Derby teammate, Mount has also played his part in the Rams’ successful Championship campaign.
