Wolves reportedly showed interest in Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour this summer after receiving the green light to go on loan next season.

The highly rated young Scottish international looks great but first-team football seems hard to find at Stamford Bridge with so much competition in Thomas Tuchel’s squad.

This could mean Gilmour would do well to spend a season out of the club, and Wolves are the latest team to show interest in a deal, according to Football Insider.

Chelsea fans will no doubt be keen to keep an eye on Gilmour’s progress over the next season’s place in Tuchel’s starting XI.

Arsenal fans probably wouldn’t mind seeing this move, however, as it could be key to landing Neves from Wolves.

The Gunners look like they could sign the Portugal international following the departure of Dani Ceballos after his two-year loan at the Emirates Stadium.
