CHELSEA misfit Billy Gilmour is wanted by Brighton.
The Scotland midfielder had a season to forget on loan at relegated Norwich last time around.
But the 21-year-old was long considered one of the jewels of Chelsea’s prestigious academy.
And Seagulls boss Graham Potter still thinks the pint-sized playmaker can be a big hit in the Premier League.
However, the move would need to be a permanent one as Brighton have already signed Levi Colwill on loan from Chelsea, report the Daily Mail.
New Prem rules do not allow clubs to register more than one loan from the same club and only two loans in total.
Potter also wants back-up as he fears losing midfield enforcer Moises Caicedo to Manchester United.
The Ecudaorian put in a dominant performance at Old Trafford as the Seagulls won 2-1 on the Prem’s opening weekend.
Gilmour will struggle to even make the bench for the Blues this season.
He already has the likes of Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Conor Gallagher ahead of him.
And Chelsea are still keen on landing Barcelona and Holland star Frenkie de Jong before deadline day.
Gilmour was astounding against England in the 0-0 draw at Wembley in the Euro 2020 group stage.
But the former Rangers youth star has seen his career stall ever since.
A move to Potter’s Seagulls, who like to play the ball on the deck, could be perfect to revitalise his fortunes.
