Arsenal are being linked with a shock swoop for Chelsea winger Robert Kenedy Nunes Nascimento, well-known as Kenedy.

According to a report from sports TV channel ESPN, a host of top clubs across Europe want to land the Brazilian and The Gunners are among the interested parties.

Kenedy’s future at The Blues has come under immense scrutiny in the latest times and in January, he sealed a loan switch to Newcastle United. Since then, he has been in stunning form and has shown his class in the Premier League.

As a result of his eye-catching performances in a Newcastle shirt, it looks like interest in Kenedy has only increased ahead of the summer transfer window and The Blues may well find it hard to keep hold of the versatile forward.

Kenedy will be concentrated on making the most of the final part of his loan time at the Magpies and Newcastle will undoubtedly be looking to make his outright deal at the club a permanent one.

The Gunners, as per ESPN, will face rivalry from Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain for the 22-year-old’s signature.
