Report details potential boost for Tottenham and Arsenal, as Everton star makes decision

German newspaper Bild have claimed that Jonjoe Kenny is desperate to remain at Schalke beyond the summer after an impressive loan from Everton – despite reported interest from both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

Kenny, 23, has clocked up 26 appearances in all competitions for Schalke – and has even had a hand in four goals, scoring once and creating three. The England Under-21 defender wants to remain with the Bundesliga club.

The report also claims that Schalke want to keep Kenny, but are unable to afford a permanent deal for the £15,000-a-week star (Spotrac). According to a report from the Daily Mail, Tottenham and Arsenal are keen on£ Kenny.

 

Given that Schalke are unable to land Kenny on a permanent basis, especially with the current outbreak of Covid-19, surely that is a boost for Tottenham and Arsenal in their pursuit of the impressive right-back.

TBR’s view – Kenny is another example of England’s top right-backs

Undoubtedly, Trent Alexander-Arnold is England’s best right-back. But Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Reece James have all been linked with being called up by Gareth Southgate.

But Kenny is certainly showing plenty of quality, enough to be in with a shout and named alongside the aforementioned quintet. Just because he is in the Bundesliga should not mean he is overlooked – Jadon Sancho, for example.

Though he has enormous competition, Kenny needs to be on Southgate’s radar.
