Arsenal are among the clubs keeping tabs on Kenedy’s situation at Chelsea FC during the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

Website Goal is reporting that Kenedy is attracting interest from a host of top clubs this summer after his impressive loan spell at Newcastle United from Chelsea FC.

Kenedy signed for Newcastle United on a six-month loan deal back in January and earned praise for his performances for the Magpies under Rafael Benitez.

The same report says Bundesliga side RB Leipzig are the latest team to join the race to sign Kenedy this summer, with the likes of Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich all also interested.

According to the same story, Newcastle United are keen to keep hold of Kenedy, but they do not expect to be able to afford to sign the 22-year-old Brazilian.

For the time being, Kenedy remains a Chelsea FC player, but it remains to be seen what will transpire in the coming weeks and months.

Arsenal are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Unai Emery looks to assemble a squad capable of breaking back into the top four next season.
