PSG have nabbed a number of players from La Masia in recent years, including Xavi Simons and Kays Ruiz-Atil.

And Barcelona might look to get one back on the Parisians by nabbing a player who has been at the Parc des Princes since he was 13 years old.

They could face competition in their bid to secure his signature, though.

The report also says that City, Juventus and Valencia are keen to bring him in.

His contract with PSG expires at the end of next season, giving clubs a stronger chance of snapping him up.

Michut has also impressed for France at both Under 16 and Under 17 level, showing his potential pedigree in the process.
