Teenage midfielder wanted by Barcelona, Juve and Real.

Chelsea are facing a battle to keep teenage wonderkid Kyle Scott at the club this summer, with a number of top European clubs keen on the youngster, reports the Daily Mail.

Scott, 15, is yet to sign a professional contract with Chelsea and Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid are all interested in signing the central midfielder on the cheap.

The player helped the Blues to the final of the FA Youth Cup this season – where they lost 4-2 to Norwich – and has also represented England under-16s.

Despite regularly spending multi-million pounds on first-team stars, Chelsea boast a fine youth set-up and won the 2012 FA Youth Cup before this year’s disappointment in the final.

The west London outfit are said to be desperate to keep hold of Scott.

Meanwhile, Chelsea’s incoming boss Jose Mourinho is eyeing a summer swoop for highly-rated Dutch youngster Marco van Ginkel of Vitesse Arnhem.

But top Blues target Edinson Cavani may remain in the Serie A next season after holding talks with current club Napoli.
