Young Chelsea striker Kenedy is set for another loan spell for the second time in a row.
The Brazilian star has huge potentials to become a great player in the nearest future but the competition for a place at Chelsea has prevented him from establishing himself as one of the deadly youngsters in the game.
He was loaned out to Newcastle in the second half of last season, where he performed brilliantly helping the Magpies avoid relegation.
Despite his blistering displays for the club, Chelsea incoming manager Maurizio Sarri might fail to add him to his first-team squad in the coming season, therefore, a loan move seems to be the perfect option for the 22-year-old.
Having seen how impressive he was during his stay with him last season, Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez has told his employer to get him ahead of next season and they have heard his plea by contacting the Blues hierarchy for the player’s signature.
According to The Daily Mail, the deal will be sealed in coming days so that he will link up with the rest of the squad for the upcoming pre-season tournament in Australia where they will battle Perth Glory on the 23rd of this month.
Kenedy is presently in Chelsea’s training ground but he could complete his switch to the St James’ Park this week according to the British media.
