Chelsea Midfielder Reportedly Set to Leave Stamford Bridge for Another Club
Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour is reportedly on the verge of leaving Stamford Bridge ahead of a season-long loan move to Norwich City despite impressing in fleeting performances since making his debut for the Blues in 2020 under Frank Lampard.
The Scottish is currently behind Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic, a situation that has left him with no choice but to seek a move away.
SunSport reports that the promising midfielder is in line to join Norwich for the rest of the season next term, with the newly-promoted side desperate to bolster their squad.
Last week, the publication claimed Norwich were in a pole position to land the 20-year-old who is also angling for first-team football.
According to Sky Sports, Gilmour has already agreed to move to Norwich for a season and the deal could be announced in the coming days. The development came only days after the former Rangers academy starlet produced a man-of-the-match performance for Scotland against England in the Euros at Wembley.
In a similar development, Romelu Lukaku has reportedly turned down a chance to join Premier League champions Manchester City this summer. The Belgian star helped Inter Milan win their first Serie A title in over a decade but became a transfer subject after the exit of Antonio Conte from the club a few weeks back. Chelsea have also been linked with a move for the former Everton and Manchester United star but he has insisted that he is happy at his present club.
