BIG BLOW: Chelsea set to miss out signing of wonderkid Ligue 1 midfielder

Chelsea are allegedly set to miss out on the landing of Paris Saint-Germain youngster Kays Ruiz-Atil.

The 18-year-old midfielder was handed a few opportunities in France under now-Blues boss Thomas Tuchel, but he didn’t play a single minute of football for the Parisians after Mauricio Pochettino took control of the reins.

Kays is therefore set to leave the club when his deal expires in a few days’ time, and the Blues were tipped to bring him to Stamford Bridge earlier this year in order for the youngster to continue his development under Tuchel.

However, Calciomercato journalist Matteo Moretto states that Barcelona are closing in on a summer deal for Ruiz-Atil, who spent six years with the Spanish side’s La Masia academy between 2009 and 2015.
