Fikayo Tomori and Baba Rahman have both left the club on loan to AC Milan and PAOK respectively and it seems another Chelsea player is set to join the loan army.

According to Daily Mail, Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour keen to leave the club on loan before the January transfer window deadline after he was once again left out of Thomas Tuchel’s matchday squad for the 2-0 win over Burnley.

Despite impressing in Chelsea’s 3-1 FA Cup win against Luton, the Scotland U21 international has failed to make the matchday squad in any of Tuchel’s games in charge.

With the European Championships set for this summer, the former Rangers midfielder is desperate to play regularly to boost his chances of making Scotland’s senior squad.

He fears he might not get game time under Tuchel and is ready to leave the club on loan to achieve that.

Meanwhile, Tuchel admits he has a good impression about Gilmour.

Tuchel said: “For Billy, I have a good impression. He is a very strategic guy, very high level of game understanding, good in the first contact, clever positioning.

“We will see if he has the physical level. But he is super quick with his feet.”
