Is Billy Gilmour Moving to Chelsea?

  • Signed a boot deal with addidas in 2016
  • 15 year old Scottish Wonderkid Midfielder
  • Trained with Rangers’s first team in January 2017
  • Linked with a move to a number of top European clubs
  • Reported £500k move to Chelsea agreed

Goal.com are reporting that Rangers 15 year old wonderkid Gilmour is moving to Chelsea in a £500,000 move.

The Scottish Under-17’s midfielder has been linked with a move to a number of top clubs including Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester United, and Liverpool but is seems like the London club have won the race for the highly-rated midfielder.

If the report is true Gilmour will move to Stamford Bridge when he turns 16 in June.

Chelsea have yet to comment regarding the deal but have a habit of buying young players from youth academies and loaning them out to other clubs.

Gilmour will be hoping to make a bigger impact than Somalian born forward Islam Feruz, the last player to move from Scotland to Chelsea when he moved from Celtic for £300,000 compensation in 2011. After five loan moves Feruz is yet to play a first team game for Chelsea of score a senior goal.

Football has been my ultimate passion since day one. Football really started becoming a huge part of my life when I was 14, but with the Internet not being as prominent at the time, I had a hard time finding pertinent information. And this is exactly how Football-Wonderkids came about. As the website’s Founder, I’m on a mission to curate information on current youth players across the globe and make it readily available all in one place.
