His chances of being a Chelsea starting player next season are likely to increase as the Blues are unable to sign any new players because of the government sanctions placed on Roman Abramovich. Conor Gallagher, Conor’s fellow loanee from midfield is also keen to get into the first team.
Gallagher, unlike Gilmour, has yet to make an appearance at Chelsea. However, the England international has been a sensational player for Crystal Palace this season. Gallagher also received an international call-up. The future is bright at Stamford Bridge.
