Norwich closing in on loan deal for Chelsea starlet Billy Gilmour

New Premier League boys Norwich City are closing in on a loan deal for Chelsea sensation Billy Gilmour. 

The 20-year-old is one of the promising youngsters at the London club, and has always impressed anytime he has been called upon. 

He gave a man-of-the-match performance for Scotland against England at the ongoing EURO 2020 tournament but was unlucky to miss the last match after he tested positive for coronavirus. 

Despite his constant eye-catching performances, Gilmour has failed to break into the starting lineup, with the brilliance of Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, and Mateo Kovacic keeping him on the periphery. 

In total, Gilmour made 11 appearances for Chelsea last season, five of which came in the Premier League.

Norwich are not the only suitors though, with the likes of Southampton and  Newcastle United also linked with the diminutive midfielder. 

The Canaries open their 2021/22 Premier League season with a home match against Liverpool
