Journalist Pete O’Rourke has been speaking on the latest edition of The Football Terrace’s The Done Deal Show about Norwich City’s interest in Billy Gilmour.
O’Rourke revealed that Norwich are indeed keen on Gilmour – but so are plenty of other clubs.
He said: “So I think going out on loan to another Premier League club would probably be the preferred destination for Gilmour and for Chelsea, just to see how he copes with a full season in the Premier League.
“I spoke to somebody at Norwich yesterday, and they did confirm they’re very much interested in signing Gilmour, but he did say to me, there is a long list of clubs after Gilmour, and he wasn’t sure exactly where Norwich would be on that list.
“So I think you’re probably talking about half the Premier League will be interested in Billy Gilmour if he’s available. Most of the bottom-half teams would take him in a heartbeat.”
Would you be pleased if Norwich sign Gilmour?
Yes, this would be a great signing
No, we don't need him
TIF Thoughts on Gilmour to Norwich…
Gilmour has a bright future ahead of him, and playing under a manager like Daniel Farke, who has a fine track record with youngsters, could turn out to be an excellent move for both Gilmour and, more importantly, for the Premier League newboys.
So, we will have to watch what happens now, but if Norwich can bring in Gilmour, that could prove to be a superb loan deal if he continues to deliver on the promise that has got many sitting up and taking notice.
