Kenedy has been in quite some form for Granada lately, having scored five goals with two assists since December and featuring in just about every single game since, mostly from the start. And that continued apace today, with the 25-year-old adding another goal and another assist in Granada’s shock 2-0 victory over Napoli in the first leg of the Europa League Round of 32.
Granada’s two goals were scored in the space of just as many minutes in the first half. On the first, the Chelsea loanee produced a Ziyech-esque left-footed cross from the right flank, finding the head of Yangel Herrera.
Yangel Herrera (23| ) no para de anotar GOLES con el Granada. Gran cabezazo para abrir la cuenta ante Napoli por la ida de la #UEL— Express Futbol (@ExpressFutbolCL) February 18, 2021
En la temporada 20/21 ya suma 8 Goles con el cuadro de Diego Martínez. Tremendo mediocampista sudamericano.pic.twitter.com/KmqLyfRd5I
Just a minute later, Kenedy then took matters even more directly into his own hands, finishing off a counter-attack with an unerring shot into the bottom corner across the goalkeeper.
Kenedy’s exploits this season should certainly pique the interest of a number of European clubs, and one would imagine there will be several offers inbound in the summer for Chelsea to consider. (Kenedy’s current Chelsea contract expires in 2022.)
