Norwich has been reported to be among other clubs that have shown a keen interest in Chelsea’s young midfielder Billy Gilmour on a season-long loan deal for the 2021/22 campaign.

The newly-promoted Premier League team are hoping the sign the 20-year-old midfielder, who dazzled in the Euro 2020 campaign, to strengthen up their team ahead of the coming season.

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel had previously talked about his admiration for the midfielder’s talents while stopping a potential loan move to Southampton during the winter transfer window in January.

Now, however, the Blues now have more time to land new players and could also potentially scout for a midfielder during the summer transfer window. They are known to be a long term admirer of West Ham’s midfielder Declan Rice.

The arrival of a new prolific midfielder or the return of a loan midfielder to the squad could see Gilmour sent on loan to get more experience. Ethan Ampadu and Conor Gallagher are tagged as the most likely players to be recalled to the Chelsea team.

Gilmour started off the 2020/21 campaign with a knee injury but was able to register six appearances under the reign of Frank Lampard, while he registered five games under the reign of the new manager Tuchel.

Ever since the Scotland international broke into the Blues first-team, Chelsea believed that the young player would earn a spot for himself in Chelsea starting lineup.

Norwich City, under the reign of Daniel Farke, claimed the Championship title last season to secure promotion back to the Premier League after one season of being relegated from the top flight in the 2019/20 campaign, meilleurjeux casino covering that season with odds.

Their superstar Emiliano Buendia, who played a pivotal role in securing their return to the English top-flight, was sold to Aston Villa in a £35 million deal with add-ons at the beginning of the transfer window, with Arsenal was reported to have been linked with a move for the player. Buendia was named EFL Player of the Season following his astounding performance for Norwich.
