Former Rangers kid Billy Gilmour could be about to leave Chelsea on loan – and the suggestion he could end up at Ibrox has Gers fans very excited.
The Ibrox club is routinely linked with a return for Billy, 20, who is currently recovering with Coivd-19 after contracting the virus at Euro 2020.
After impressing for Scotland against England, interest will certainly have increased around the youngster who is currently on the fringes at Chelsea.
Whilst he is believed to have a big future at Stamford Bridge, the likes of BBC Sport are now reporting that he is eager to make a loan move next season.
Up to six Premier League clubs have been linked [Scottish Sun] and Norwich City are believed to be amongst the frontrunners.
But whilst the BBC Sport report claims that Gilmour’s preference is a season in the Premier League, the national broadcaster admits the Gers’ Champions League fate could swing things in their favour.
Steven Gerrard’s side are hoping to reach the competition for the first time in 11 years and the Ibrox faithful have pleaded with Billy to make the switch:
A Year as part of a title-winning squad will certainly cement that winning mentality.
56 in the bag

Billy Gilmour going on loan to Norwich for the season by the looks of it. Rangers should be bursting there arse trying to get him back for a season imo ✔️

Seeing Billy Gilmour come and play a season at Rangers would be amazing. Unfortunately I’d hazard a guess there are richer leagues offering more than we can.

Whilst things certainly appearing to be whirring around Norwich when it comes to the midfielder, it hasn’t stopped these Gers fans hoping.
The club continues to be linked to a host of talent ahead of the new season with one – who is currently plying his trade in South America – locked in a £3m Atletico contract wrangle.
