West Ham among trio of clubs reportedly interested in Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour

West Ham among trio of clubs reportedly interested in Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour

Billy Gilmour’s time at Chelsea

The 2019/20 campaign of course proved Billy Gilmour’s breakout season.

The young midfielder was just one of a host of academy stars to have been handed the opportunity to impress by Frank Lampard.

And Gilmour went on to grasp his chance with both hands, putting on some starring displays vs the likes of Liverpool and Everton.

However, the Scot suffered an injury late last season, which subsequently saw him miss both Chelsea’s run-in, and opening to the new campaign.

Gilmour, though, has since returned to fitness, and is slowly being reintegrated into the Blues’ first-team setup.

The midfielder has now featured six times for Chelsea’s senior side this term, with his latest appearance having seen the starlet impress in a midfield pairing with Mason Mount vs Luton.

Several clubs eyeing Gilmour

Since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival at Stamford Bridge, though, the Scot hasn’t been afforded a single minute of action.

And though the German hinted that Gilmour, nor anyone else for that matter, would be leaving the club this month, talk of a Chelsea exit has persisted.

According to the Mirror, citing the Sun, all of West Ham, Burnley and Rangers are believed to be interested in the midfielder.

However, it is added that Chelsea are reluctant to let Gilmour join West Ham due to the Hammers’ league position, with David Moyes’ men of course sitting above the Blues at present:
