The Brazilian joined the Magpies over the summer on loan for a second time as a result of his positive first stint on Tyneside and has made 28 appearances in all competitions this season. 

Kenedy was valued by Chelsea at £30m last summer as Newcastle explored the possibility of signing the midfielder on a full-time basis. 

However, with the Brazilian out of contract next year, Chelsea are willing to lower their original valuation of the player in a bid to sell the midfielder over the summer. 

It remains unclear as to how low Chelsea are willing to go in terms of offloading Kenedy, however, the Blues look extremely keen on selling the player this summer.
