Rangers are interested in taking Billy Gilmour on loan at Ibrox next season with Chelsea set to sent the Scotland international out on loan.

The Ibrox side have been routinely linked with moves for the now 20-year-old ever since he left Glasgow as a teenager to move to Stamford Bridge.

Heavily linked again last season, Rangers appeared to miss out to now relegated Premier League side Norwich City with Billy Gilmour enjoying an up-and-down campaign with the Canaries.

Having broke through into the Chelsea side under former manager Frank Lampard, Thomas Tuchel has used the midfielder more sparingly.

Rangers once again linked to Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour

TEAMtalk are claiming that Chelsea are looking at potential loan opportunities ahead of the summer with Rangers interested in taking the kid to Ibrox.

According to that report, the move is likely to appeal to Billy Gilmour himself and Rangers pose an interesting option.

If the club can also secure Champions League football, then it represents a more enticing proposition for both Chelsea and Gilmour next season.

Rangers can secure qualification for the elite level tournament by overcoming Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League Final.

It would be some sight to see Billy Gilmour strutting his stuff at Ibrox after all and this would be a transfer that would be very popular amongst fans.

Gilmour’s situation at Chelsea is also complicated by the form of Crystal Palace loanee Conor Gallagher, who returns to the club this summer.

England international midfielder Gallagher has had a barnstorming season at Selhurst Park and the TEAMtalk report claims as a result is ahead of Billy in the Chelsea pecking order.

This isn’t the first time we’ve mentioned Conor Gallagher this week either, with Rangers having a vested interest in what happens to the youngster this summer.
