Premier League club Burnley are eyeing a big money move for Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori during this summer’s transfer window.
According to the Daily Star, the Clarets want to sign the young centre back who spent last season on loan at English Championship side Derby County.
Fikayo Tomori had a very good season under the guidance of new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard while they were at Derby County last season and the player would be hoping to get the same level of support from the Blues legend at Stamford Bridge.
His performances for Derby County were rewarded at the end of the season when the Chelsea loanee was named the Player of the Year.

The 21-year-old would be hoping to achieve the same impact at Chelsea having returned to the club after his loan spell at Derby County.
He was part of the Derby County team that came close to sealing a spot in the Premier League.
Aston Villa achieved that ahead of Derby County after their 2-1 win over the Rams in the Championship playoff final.
Burnley might lose centre back James Tarkowski to Leicester City and Fikayo Tomori could be his direct replacement at the Turf Moor.
Leicester see James Tarkowski as the man to replace Manchester United-linked Harry Maguire at the club.
