Rangers are keen on a January loan swoop for Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour, according to the Scottish Sun.
The report says that the Premier League club are open to the idea of a temporary return to Ibrox for the Scottish midfielder.
But Frank Lampard spoke about Gilmour after his performance in the 1-1 draw against Krasnodar last night.
As per the Evening Standard, Lampard hinted that Gilmour would be staying at Stamford Bridge.
“”The way he played today and how he trains I see him growing with us, he’s going to be a Chelsea player,” said Lampard.
“[It’s] just making sure the pathway is right for him. I thought Billy was outstanding on his return.
“I felt very comfortable with him coming back in, he’s trained so well, done his rehab and he deserved his chance tonight.”
According to reports in Italy, Rangers face competition for his signature from Napoli.
Gilmour would be a fantastic signing for Steven Gerrard. He has proved his quality already in England.
There are a lot of players blocking his path at Chelsea, and some regular football at Rangers could be ideal.
That’s especially pertinent with the rearranged European Championship on the horizon, where Gilmour will be hoping to make up for lost time and shine for Scotland.
But Lampard appears to be keen to keep the midfielder in west London and further his development that way.
