Chelsea duo Kenedy and Matt Miazga could be moving on this summer as reports suggest Antonio Conte will let them leave in loan deals to continue their development.
The Italian tactician is busy making changes to his squad this summer, and will be eyeing further arrivals between now and the deadline at the end of the month.
According to Goal, his work will also involve allowing some individuals to leave, with two in particular on the verge of sealing temporary exits.
It’s claimed that Kenedy has agreed on a loan move to join Watford, while Miazga will also move to another Premier League club, although he has to yet to decide between two unknown sides.
Both individuals will undoubtedly benefit from playing regularly as they continue to improve and mature, and so a move elsewhere on loan would certainly make sense for all concerned.
It appears as though it’s a strategy from Conte too who will monitor their development closely, as the former Juventus and Italy boss also sent Bertrand Traore out on loan to Ajax for the season.
He’ll naturally hope that the trio make plenty of progress ahead of next season, when he will reassess their situations and decide on whether or not they have a role to play for his side in the immediate future.
While his Chelsea squad is packed with attacking talent, it does make sense to allow Kenedy to play elsewhere, although the Italian boss still needs to address the central pairing of his defence.
With a lack of depth behind Gary Cahill and John Terry, and with Kurt Zouma injured for the time being, Conte will likely be scouring the market for a new defensive ace in the coming weeks.
