FC Copenhagen are ready to sell Chelsea target Roony Bardghji, who has also been watched by Manchester United and Tottenham among others, during the January transfer window.

The Blues have a long-term admiration of Bardghji, who only turned 18 back in November but has quickly announced himself as one of Europe's top prospects.

The winger notably scored the winner in Copenhagen's thrilling 4-3 victory at home to Manchester United in the Champions League last month, which helped the Danish champions seal qualification to the knockout stages at the expense of the Red Devils.

90min understands Copenhagen are prepared to sanction an exit next month, and Chelsea are keen to beat the queue to Bardghji's signature and will look to reach an agreement with Copenhagen immediately - but with the forward making the move to west London at the end of the season.

Chelsea face significant competition in the race to sign Bardghji. Fellow Premier League sides Aston Villa, Brentford, Brighton & Hove Albion, Fulham, Manchester United, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur have all held talks with intermediaries regarding a deal having kept a close eye on his progress.

From mainland Europe, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Marseille, Monaco, Napoli and PSV Eindhoven have all shown an interest in Bardghji.

Across 30 games in all competitions this season, Bardghji has scored 11 goals for Copenhagen. He has spent three seasons in the first-team and has been tipped to break into Sweden's senior squad in the near future having played eight times for the Under-21s.

Bardghji's contract with Copenhagen expires in the summer of 2025. Keep up to date with the latest Chelsea transfer news.
