Chelsea winger Kenedy had a fine spell on loan with Granada where he scored eight goals and provided six assists in 44 appearances across all competitions.

Kenedy is attracting interest from Europe and Brazil, and Brazilian giants Flamengo are currently targeting the Chelsea man.

According to UOL Esporte, Flamengo’s club chief Marcos Braz has admitted that Kenedy is among the players from big European clubs that they are targeting, but he revealed that they have to be patient in the deal.

“These are players who have contracts with giant Europeans. We have to be patient; there is the pandemic, which is the biggest health crisis on the planet. If we are taking this long, it is because it is being done with transparency and responsibility,” Braz said.

Kenedy has been a Chelsea player since signing as a buzzing teenager from Fluminense back in 2015.

Kenedy hasn’t really had a shot in the Chelsea first team, and has had loan spells since then.

The 25-year-old Brazilian has had loan spells at Watford, Newcastle United, and Getafe before landing at Granada last summer.
