The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been waiting for this deal to be confirmed…
As stated by Rangers on their official website, Chelsea have agreed a deal for young midfielder Billy Gilmour, with the player set to join the club this summer.
This is a transfer saga that has long been touted, with the Blues seemingly amongst a number of clubs keen on securing a deal for the player.
Significantly, he has yet to play for the Rangers’ first team, but the Chelsea brass has seemingly already seen enough of him to warrant such an investment. A technical midfielder, Gilmour has been performing far beyond his years as of late – though it remains to be seen whether he will be good enough to make it at Chelsea.
That said, the Chelsea developmental system is amongst the best in the world when it comes to producing young talent. With numerous FA Youth Cups behind them, there is no doubting that Gilmour will have the best foundations from which to build.
Our landlord thinks that finding a first team role is a different story entirely, though.
