Gilmour seeks reunion with Frank Lampard

About Football Express India - Indian Super League - I-League

Billy Gilmour has had a tough time at Chelsea ever since Frank Lampard left. The Englishman impressed a lot under Lampard. It seemed like the midfielder was well on his way to making it big for Chelsea. But Frank Lampard was sacked and Thomas Tuchel never really gave a proper chance to Gilmour. Gilmour got pundits and fans excited when he broke into Chelsea’s side. But since then, he has struggled for minutes.

Eventually, Gilmour was sent on loan to Norwich. But the youngster again had a tough time at Norwich, struggling for game time. His loan spell has ended and Norwich, meanwhile, has been relegated. Gilmour did not really have any time to make a big impact at Norwich. But now, returning from his loan spell, Gilmour is on the shortlist for some clubs. One of them is Frank Lampard’s Everton.

Everton are in dire need of class and quality in their midfield. Gilmour being young and technically gifted can be the answer to their midfield problems. Everton are really struggling to find suitable replacements for the player that have left. Last season they just about managed to avoid relegation. Richarlison has left the club for Spurs. It will be a massive void to fill for Everton

Will Everton be able to avoid Relegation?

Everton are in for a tough season. The attack has lost its main man while the defense is also not looking anything too solid. Lampard took a chance on Dele Alli which has not paid off at all. Gilmour will be hoping to reunite with his former manager. Lampard believes in the youngster and might very well be the spark his career needs.

Lampard has a big job on his hands. The Chelsea legend will be hoping that the club backs his signings and give him what he wants. The coming season is going to be a rollercoaster ride for Everton and Lampard.
