Chelsea are about to send Billy Gilmour on loan to Norwich City.
According to EDP, the Scotland international is set to undergo his medical soon with the newly-promoted Canaries.
Gilmour found gametime hard to come by under Thomas Tuchel last season. But the teenage sensation showed early on under Frank Lamapard just how much potential he has. He was also greatly influential in Scotland’s group stage tie against England before COVID-19 halted his Euros aspirations.
Norwich City is the ideal destination for him to go and develop his game. The Canaries play a highly-energetic attacking breed of football under Daniel Farke. Gilmour will face much more competition back at Stamford Bridge than he will at Carrow Road. Tuchel already has N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Matteo Kovacic with further plans of adding more talent.
Gilmour will instead, be afforded the space to fill up Olivier Skipp’s position, who returned to Tottenham Hotspur. He will finish his medicals with Norwich after his self-isolation period ends. Farke shares a working relationship with Tuchel back from their time at Borussia Dortmund. This will help in Chelsea monitoring Gilmour’s progress even better.
