Chelsea leading race to sign 16-year-old promising attacker

The Copenhagen winger Roony Bardghji has emerged as one of the most sought-after prospects in the Danish Superliga and is now a subject of interest for major teams around Europe.

It appears the London giants had sent their head of youth recruitment, Jim Fraser, to Copenhagen earlier this month to keep an eye on U17 Sweden international. They intend to add Bardghji for free before loaning him out to Copenhagen for a couple of years.

As he is under 18 years old, Roony can fall under the “homegrown” quota, thus making him a valuable target for Chelsea. The Blues were believed to be interested in the services of the 16-year-old winger during his time at Malmo’s youth academy.

However, the Swedish forward ended up joining the Copenhagen academy last summer, a move that was worked out wonderfully well for the footballer, who has recently made his Superliga debut, at the age of only 16.

Indeed, Roony was recently given his maiden start in the recent league match with Aarhus, with the teenager even producing a Man of the Match display in the 1-1 draw.

His explosive style of play has attracted admirers from all over Europe, with many keen on getting their hands on the Swedish winger, who was born in Kuwait and has Syrian heritage. Speaking of the Blues, they have lost a few of their academy gems in the summer transfer window, including Lewis Bate, who joined Leeds United.
