On loan Newcastle starlet Kenedy is attracting interest from the continent after having made a string of fine displays for the Magpies since his move North East in January.
The forward, on loan from Chelsea, has been an instant hit on Tyneside where he has been key to the club’s recent revival and helped to steer them away from perils of relegation from the Premier League.
Two goals and two goals assists in eight appearances have seen his worth rocket and according to Sky Sports, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain want to be kept informed if the Blues do decide to sell the player.
But Newcastle fans are all keen to see Kenedy remain with them, with one fan even going as far to say as he would “fight” to keep him in the North East.
However, there is no buy-out clause in place for the signing of the former Fluminense ace but a report in the Newcastle Chronicle states that they will attempt to make the move a permanent one once they are safe.
The 22-year-old Brazilian didn’t feature at all for Antonio Conte’s side prior to his temporary exit to St James’ in the winter transfer window and last season played a grand total of 90 minutes of football in the entirety of the campaign.
Here is a selection of Twitter responses from supporters of the North East outfit to the reported speculation:
If he goes to any of them clubs he’ll be back to square 1, he won’t get any game time plus he said he wants to stay here.

I think we’ll have first option on Kenedy & he’s already said he loves it here & wants to stay so….
