Billy Gilmour wanted by Norwich on season loan transfer as Scotland's Chelsea ace isolates after positive Covid test
BILLY GILMOUR could be heading to Norwich next season.
The young midfielder is currently self-isolating with the Scotland squad after testing positive for Covid-19.
The Chelsea star will miss the crunch Group D clash at Hampden tonight and potentially his country’s Euro 2020 last-16 tie if they go through as he self-isolates for ten days.
The youngster was a standout performer for Steve Clarke's men in Friday's 0-0 draw with England at Wembley.
The midfielder showed his composure and class throughout the Group D encounter earning rave reviews for his display in the middle of the park.
But the 20-year-old will potentially spend next season at Carrow Road to get a full season under his belt.
Five other top-flight clubs want the player but the Canaries are currently leading the chase.
Blues boss Thomas Tuchel worked with Norwich manager Daniel Farke at Dortmund and is keen for Gilmour to play more games next term in the Premier League.
He has featured 21 times for Chelsea’s first team after progressing through the youth ranks.
Norwich are looking for a quality young midfielder as Tottenham’s Oliver Skipp spent last season at the club.

Farke would like Skipp to return but the situation is unclear with Spurs yet to find a new manager.
England’s Euro 2020 plans were plunged into chaos yesterday when it emerged Scotland star Gilmour had tested positive for Covid-19.
He was seen after the final whistle of Friday’s goalless draw with the Three Lions hugging and embracing his Chelsea teammates Mount and Chilwell on the pitch at Wembley before they enjoyed a 25-minute chat in the tunnel.
Now the two Englishman are also isolating and will miss tonight’s game against Czech Republic.
