Born in Paris, France, Coman began his career with US Sénart-Moissy in 2002, at the age of 6. After two years with the club, he was scouted by Ligue 1 side, Paris St. Germain, with whom he joined the youth academy in 2004. After nine years in the club's youth system, Coman made his professional debut for Paris Saint-Germain on 17 February 2013, against Sochaux, in a 3–2 defeat. He came on as a substitute for Marco Verratti in the 87th minute.[2]

He is the youngest player to play with the Paris Saint-Germain at the age of 16 years, 8 months and 4 days. For this substitution, Coman was awarded a league medal at the conclusion of the campaign as a champion of Ligue 1 in 2013 with PSG.[3]

On 7 July 2014, Kingsley signed a five-year deal following the expiration of his contract with the French side.[4][5]

On 30 August 2014, Coman made his Serie A debut, starting against Chievo and was awarded man of the match.
