CHELSEA are competing with some of Europe’s top clubs to land Copenhagen wonderkid Roony Bardghji, according to reports.
The Swedish winger, 16, is on the Blues’ radar after already breaking into his side’s first-team.

But Thomas Tuchel‘s men will have stiff competition.
According to reporter Ekrem Konur, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Ajax are also interested in signing Bardghji.
The wing wizard began the season playing for Copenhagen’s Under-19 side.
But after four goals in nine appearances, he was promoted to the first-team.
He made his senior debut against Aarhus on November 21, playing 65 minutes of a 1-1 draw.
Bardghji was handed another start a week later against Aalborg – and fully grasped his opportunity.

He put his side 2-1 up in the 31st minute with a long-range effort.
Bardghji was born in Kuwait, but represents Sweden at international level.
The left-footed starlet has made four appearances for his country’s Under-17s, scoring in matches against Denmark and Switzerland.
Copenhagen will try and keep their young star.

Boss Jess Thorup told Danish broadcaster TV3: “The new strategy is to give more talents a chance.
“But it is not the intention that see play only a few games here and then leave. These players have to want to stay here for a few years to help Copenhagen get great results.
“If really big clubs come, of course, the finances will play a role. But I don’t think he’s ripe for a transfer yet.”
