Antonio Conte is ready to let Brazilian attacker Kenedy go out on loan for the 2016-17 season, with Watford close to acquiring the services of the youngster, according to Sky Sports.
The Italian manager has been active in transfer business at Stamford Bridge and has already landed Michy Batshuayi and N’Golo Kante so far this summer, with more new additions expected at Chelsea.
As such, several footballers would fail to nail down regular first team football so Conte decided to loan them out.
The winger joined Chelsea last term and has performed in 14 Premier League games for Chelsea, netting one goal in the process.
The youngster has been used as both an attacker and a full-back since joining the Premier League giants and would offer Watford versatility this season.
The South American star is a Brazil under-20 international and the West Londoners are understood to have high dreams he can be top-class in the future.
Meanwhile, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte claims Chelsea are trying hard to make some new signings, however, are being forced to be quiet due to the “crazy” sort of the transfer market this summer.
The ex-Italy manager is preparing up for his first competitive match in as a manager of West Londoners when they take on City rivals West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Monday.
The Blues have only landed Michy Batshuayi and N’Golo Kante ahead of the match, in a transfer window which has seen The Red Devils sigh Paul Pogba for a world record £93.8m price.
However, Conte claims he and The Blues officials are still expecting to sign a few more news players before the window shuts at the end of this month.
“I speak every day with the club, and we have a plan,” he revealed in a recent interview. “We know that this transfer market is crazy and different, but we must be patient to find the right solutions for the team, and it is important to speak every day with the club to find the right solution to improve this squad,” Conte said
“I prefer to talk these topics with the club and have the idea to improve the squad, sure in the future, it something can happen.” He Added.
