The 19-year-old is believed to be one of the hottest young prospects in world football at the moment, with the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona keeping tabs on his progress.

And though the Rio De Janeiro based club have kept quiet on where he could be heading next, the Brazilian news publication believe he is Stamford Bridge bound.

And should their claims turn out to be true, the teenage forward will be linking up with the Blues’ already considerable Brazilian contingent of Willian, Oscar, Filipe Luis, Diego Costa (by birth).

The O Globo report claims that Kenedy has actually been sold to a third party group, who will then move him on to Chelsea.

Kenedy had been on international duty with the Brazil under-20 side, but was forced to pull out due to a bout of appendicitis.
