Kenedy was one of Newcastle United’s standout players in the second half of last season following his loan move to St James’ Park from Chelsea.
The left-sided player, who is equally comfortable as a winger or a full-back, scored two goals and registered two assists in 13 Premier League appearances for the Magpies.
It become clear early on that the North-East outfit were keen on tying the Brazilian down to a permanent deal, but it has not gone smoothly.
Despite the fact that Kenedy’s parent club Chelsea rarely have a use for the 22-year-old given that he has started only five top-flight matches since joining the club in 2015, it seems that they are unwilling to let him go without a fight.

According to a report in The Chronicle on Monday, the West London outfit want in the region of £30m for the Brazil Under-23 international.
Newcastle fans have been tweeting their thoughts on the story, and many have been left baffled by the asking price.
£10 million to much IMO, wouldn’t pay anymore than £20 million for him.

So Chelsea paid roughly 7m for him then loaned him to watford where he made 1 appearance then he came to us and looked a good player and they now want 30m! I wouldn’t pay more than 20m he hasn’t done enough to command a 30m fee #nufc
