Chelsea and Scotland starlet Billy Gilmour has found himself mixing with the world’s best teenage football talent.

The Scots starlet has put in some decent shifts for the Stamford Bridge side this season, making his mark in the senior game aged just 18. That has seen him recognised in Goal’s 2020 men’s NxGn list, coming in at number 33.

To get onto this list, you have to be born on or after January 1, 2001, and there are some pretty decent names alongside Gilmour on the list. Those include Giovanni Reyna, Ansu Fati, Mason Greenwood and eventual winner and Real Madrid prospect Rodrygo.

Gilmour was handed a Premier League debut earlier this season against Sheffield United after boss Frank Lampard noticed his good work in the Chelsea youth sides. He hasn’t looked back since, putting himself into contention for a senior Scotland call-up.

This is another nice nod for the Scotland starlet who is continuing his upwards career path in one of the world’s top leagues.
