The coming months are vital for the defender as he aims to earn a call-up from the England national team with the European Championships set to kick off in June.

"I'd be lying if I said I'm not thinking about it, of course I am," said Tomori, on being quizzed if he's striving for a return to Gareth Southgate's squad, having made his senior debut for the Three Lions in November 2019.

"But at the moment I'm taking it game by game, week by week and hopefully at the end of the season, I have a Scudetto and I'm in the England squad."
