Chelsea winger Kenedy who is currently on a loan deal at the St James’ Park is reportedly drawing Bayern Munich’s attention as the Bundesliga Champions are currently in search of a striker who would serve as Robben’s replacement ahead of next season.
The Dutch international is set to end his long-term spell at the Allianz Arena by the end of this current campaign as he is being tracked by Chinese Super League Clubs.
In his bid to find a perfect replacement for the veteran striker, Munich’s manager Hyenkes is eyeing a possible move for the youngster who has been in fine form for the Toons this season.
Having played in eight league matches for the Rafa Benitez’s team, the 22-year-old has been directly involved in four goals – two goals and two assists and ESPN reports that he is one of the most sought-after youngsters in the world.
The Sport Journal also reported that the striker has refused to extend his contract with the Blues as he wants a permanent move out of Stamford Bridge in the summer.
Kenedy joined Chelsea from Fluminense in a £6 million deal in 2015 but he might see his fee rise up in the summer due to his fine form for Newcastle who are struggling to maintain their Premier status this season.
