Leeds: Whites linked with Kenedy move

Leeds: Whites linked with Kenedy move -Leeds United News

Leeds United could reignite their interest Chelsea winger Kenedy this summer, as Jesse Marsch looks to bring in squad reinforcements.

The Lowdown: Leeds linked with Kenedy move

The Whites were linked with a move for the Adidas-sponsored Brazilian back in January but the transfer failed to materialise in the end.

Kenedy has experienced a nomadic career to date, joining Chelsea in 2015 but being loaned out to the likes of Watford, Newcastle United, Getafe, Granada and Flamengo.

He played for 59 minutes of the Blues’ 2-1 win at home to the Hornets in the Premier League last weekend, with Thomas Tuchel putting him in the shop window before his contract expires next year.

The Latest: New report emerges

According to The Daily Mail, as rumours circle of Raphinha’s exit, Leeds could now ‘make their move’ for Kenedy after a good performance against Watford, in which he provided an assist.

He has no future at Chelsea and it could be that a permanent move elsewhere is finally sealed, rather than another loan switch.

The Verdict: Good for squad depth

While Kenedy isn’t the same calibre of player as Raphinha, he is certainly someone who could help fill the likely void left by his compatriot this summer.

Left-footed and possessing quick feet and pace, the Chelsea man could prove to be a good squad option for Marsch, providing competition for the likes of Jack Harrison and Dan James.

There is a slight risk element in signing Kenedy, considering he has struggled to tie down a permanent club over the years, but at 26, he could just be coming into his peak years.

In other news, two clubs have reportedly joined the race to sign one Leeds player. Find out who it is here.
