Real Madrid and Barcelona are both tracking Lyon youngster Rayan Cherki, according to a report.

Barcelona and Real Madrid are reportedly both keeping a close eye on the development of Lyon youngster Rayan Cherki.

The Frenchman only turned 16 last August but has made 12 first-team appearances during the 2019-20 campaign, including a Champions League outing against Zenit St Petersburg last November.

The attacker has also featured on six occasions in Ligue 1, in addition to providing three goals and two assists in three Coupe de France appearances this term.

According to Calciomercato, Barca and Madrid are both monitoring the France Under-16 international with the view to future offers.

Cherki came through the youth system with Les Gones and has a contract with the Ligue 1 giants until the end of the 2021-22 campaign.

The teenager, who has also previously been linked with Manchester United and Liverpool, has operated as a right winger, left winger and as an attacking midfielder for Lyon during the current season.
