The Lowdown: Gers prepare for new campaign
The Gers enjoyed a magnificent campaign last term, winning the Premiership title without losing a single league match (BBC).
As such, the Gers have a chance of qualifying for the Champions League group stages this term. They will need to bring in new players this summer though to deal with the gruelling task of task of competing in such elite competition alongside their domestic pursuits.
The Latest: Gilmour on the radar
It is now being reported that Gilmour will push for a loan move away from Chelsea as he looks to earn more first-team minutes.
The Daily Record have suggested the Gers could be in line to sign him, along with Brentford, West Ham, Swansea and Vitesse Arnhem.
The Verdict: Beyond the Gers reach
In an ideal world, Steven Gerrard would surely love to add £9m-valued Gilmour (Transfermarkt) to his side. The 20-year-old was part of a squad that won the Champions League last month, and he made 11 appearances in all competitions for the Blues across the season (Transfermarkt).
He has also earned a call-up to the Scotland squad for the European Championships, while Roy Keane even labelled him “world-class” in the past.
Would you like to sign Billy Gilmour?
Unfortunately, all of this probably means Gilmour will move to a Premier League side next term as he aims to test his abilities at the highest level. If the Gers do make the Champions League group stage, that could be enough to convince Gilmour, but there are no guarantees right now.
In other news, Gers have been urged to sign this young Dutchman.
