Billy Gilmour wants Chelsea loan exit to boost Scotland hopes

Billy Gilmour has asked to go on loan as he looks to cement his place in Scotland’s European Championship squad.

The 19-year-old was left out of Thomas Tuchel’s matchday squad to face Wolves on Wednesday as the new Chelsea boss rang the changes ahead of 0-0 draw.

Gilmour, a signing from Rangers, had flourished under Frank Lampard, impressing again in last Sunday’s FA Cup win over Luton Town. However, the young Scot believes opportunities will be more limited under Tuchel as he looks to give fit-again N’Golo Kante and Jorginho more regular action.

Gilmour remains highly-valued but is eager to continue playing regularly after coming back from a long lay-off.

His decision will alert Premier League sides plus those at the top end of the Championship pushing for promotion.

Liverpool Set To Sign Man Utd Target In £3 Million Deal

Liverpool are closing in on the capture of Derby County’s wunderkind Kaide Gordon, who was also courted by Manchester United. According to The Athletic, Liverpool have made huge strides in their pursuit of Kaide Gordon.

The Derby County youngster has been turning the heads with his performances in the youth competitions, and an upgrade to the Premier League could be on the horizon, with Liverpool and Manchester United reportedly interested in his services.

Reds appeared to have taken the lead in the chase to sign Gordon, having already agreed on a deal with Derby County regarding the potential switch. However, it could take at least another week before the deal can be completed, with the Premier League still yet to approve the youngster’s switch of the academy.

Gordon made his mark in front of the Liverpool scouts back in December, when his performance on the flanks stood out, even though Derby County U-18 side lost the game 3-1. It was enough to convince the defending champions to pursue the 16-year-old, who is ineligible for a professional contract until he turns 17 later this year.

Barcelona 'eyeing move for Chelsea's Marcos Alonso'

Barcelona are reportedly keen on signing Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso.

The Catalan giants are said to be targeting a new left-back before the January transfer window closes to provide competition for Jordi Alba, with Junior Firpo's future at the club unclear.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Alonso has been identified by Ronald Koeman's side as a possible arrival in the final stages of the mid-season window.

The 30-year-old has only made three appearances for the Blues during the 2020-21 campaign, while he has not played a single minute of football for the club since the end of September.

Alonso has made over 150 appearances for his current side in all competitions, though, and still has two and a half years left to run on his contract at Stamford Bridge.

Valencia's Jose Gaya is also allegedly being considered by Barca this month.

Arsenal are keen on former Aston Villa star

Arsenal are keen on signing former Aston Villa star Jordan Amavi, according to French source L’Equipe (via the Sun).

After leaving Villa in the summer of 2017, the former France U-21 international has been a first-team regular for Marseille.

Amavi’s contract with Marseille is due to end at the end of the current season, meaning that he will be able to join another club on a free transfer.

The 26-year-old may be tempted by a return to the Premier League at this point of his career, and so a move to Arsenal could appeal to him.

Amavi made ten Premier League appearances in Villa’s disastrous 2015/16 top-flight campaign, which saw them relegated to the Championship.
