Chelsea winger Kenedy could push for a move away this summer if they do not offer him more regular playing time, Goal understands.

Chelsea contract expiry dates

The 21-year-old winger has been left out of the Chelsea squad since his return from a loan spell at Watford in January, which was cut short by injury with him making one appearance.

The Blues rejected loan and permanent offers in January and Antonio Conte's decision to use him for 20 minutes in the FA Cup fourth round against Brentford - his only display for Chelsea - made him unavailable for a move in the final days of the transfer window. 

The offers were from clubs ranging from Brazil, China and Europe but Chelsea weren't interested in entertaining them. However, their representatives will formally discuss all options for Kenedy after the season is over, as he has become more open to a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Conte hasn't rotated his squad much this season, with no European fixtures to worry about and with his side in such good form. The likes of Marcos Alonso, Victor Moses and Pedro have kept Kenedy away from a starting role at the club. 

Kenedy signed for Chelsea in August 2015 for £6.8 million and his current contract runs until June 2020.
