Wolves are keen on signing Chelsea starlet Billy Gilmour on loan, according to the Athletic.
They report that Bruno Lage faces competition from Norwich City for the Scotland international.
Gilmour shone on his first international start against England on Friday at Wembley.
Unfortunately, he was ruled out with Covid as the Scots crashed out at the hands of Croatia last night.
Gilmour is a hugely talented young player with a massive future in the game ahead of him.
That is reflected in the excited reaction of many Wolves fans on Twitter when they read the rumour.
Gilmour would learn a huge amount from Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho at Molineux.
On top of that, Lage is renowned as a good developer of young talent. One fan in the replies did express an issue with improving Chelsea’s players – but it could help Wolves in the short term.
Here’s how the rumour went down on social media:
