Billy Gilmour has been tipped to be Brighton’s next big money profit.

 

The former Rangers and Chelsea kid initially struggled for game time following his switch to the Seagulls from Stamford Bridge but a big chance towards the end of last season against Wolves ended with him picking up more match minutes in the final run-in against the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Manchester City and Newcastle.

This season he has featured in every single game in the English Premier League in a major boost to both the player and Scotland boss Steve Clarke. He’s taken his game to a new level again and with the big money departures of Moises Caceido and Alexis Mac Allister to Chelsea and Liverpool this summer he’s grabbing his chance with both hands. Brighton over the years have moved players on for huge fees. The likes of Ben White and Marc Cucurella have moved on before the duo this summer and former Celtic man Adam Virgo believes Gilmour is in line to become the next big hit. He believes at only 22 there is so much learning in front of him to become even better and move for a massive fee in the next four years.

Virgo, speaking in the Daily Record, said: “Billy got his opportunity at Chelsea and his early performances were really, really good.

“At Norwich, he struggled massively but was still learning the game and then it didn’t start well at Brighton. But we’ve got to remember Billy is only 22. I feel he’s come back in this season with the mentality that Caceido would go and has grasped the opportunity.

 

“I’d be looking around and thinking: Caceido’s gone for that money, Alexis Mac Allister for £55m and, before them, Marc Cucurella for £60m and Ben White for £50m. Billy has plenty learning space in front of him to become a better player and be sold on for a big profit when he’s 25 or 26.
