Billy Gilmour: Chelsea and Scotland midfielder ‘wanted’ for loan move as former boss eyes reunion

Billy Gilmour could be set for a reunion with Frank Lampard amid reports he is wanted by Everton.

Former Chelsea boss Lampard handed the Scotland starlet his senior debut in 2019 and, according to talkSPORT, he is keen to take the 20-year-old to Goodison Park on loan next season.

Gilmour spent last season on loan at Norwich from Chelsea but the move proved to be a disastrous one with the former Rangers youngster struggling to make an impact as the Canaries finished bottom of the Premier League.

Gilmour, who has also been linked with a return to Rangers, is entering the final year of his current deal at Chelsea with the club yet to tie the midfielder down beyond the summer of 2023.

He is currently on international duty with Scotland having earned his 13th cap in the 3-1 defeat to Ukraine in the World Cup play-off semi-final at Hampden on Wednesday.
