Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is reportedly a target for Burnley this summer. 

According to claims from The Daily Star, the promising centre-back has emerged as a player who Clarets boss Sean Dyche is keen to recruit. 

Tomori spent the duration of last season away from Stamford Bridge on a loan deal. He played under new Blues manager Frank Lampard at Derby County, where he enjoyed a strong campaign.

The England Under-21 international helped the Rams to the final of the play-offs but could not aid them at the final hurdle as Aston Villa secured promotion to the Premier League with a 2-1 win.

However, Tomori could yet be playing his football in the top flight next season, as Burnley plot a move worth a reported £15 million. 

Lampard could be keen to keep hold of the Canadian-born youngster following the success the defender enjoyed under his tutelage at Pride Park, but the prospect of regular football elsewhere may be tempting for the 21-year-old.
