The 18-year-old had his breakout moment of the campaign in the Champions League match against Manchester United at home, scoring a stunning winner to power his side’s 3-2 victory over the Red Devils.

The Blues have already brought in quality young players like Andrey Santos and Lesley Ugochukwu to improve their future core, and it remains to be seen if they make a move for an exciting, clinical winger like Bardghji in 2024.
