Billy Gilmour is reportedly considering his short-term future at Chelsea.

The 19-year-old enjoyed a stellar season for the Blues during the 2020/21 campaign which saw him pick up a Champions League winners medal on May 29 after Chelsea beat Manchester City in the final at the Estadio do Dragao.

Gilmour has found it difficult to find game time due to the competitiveness in the Chelsea midfield. He is competing with N'Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic on a game-by-game basis.
