The west Londoners have failed in their attempts to recall Emerson Palmieri from his loan spell at Lyon and could now turn to the versatile Kenedy, according to The Sun.
The 25-year-old joined Chelsea for £6million in 2015 but has full Premier League loans at Watford and Newcastle and spells in Spain at Getafe and Granada.
The Brazilian has made just 15 Premier League appearances for Chelsea, his last coming in 2016.
The Brazilian has made 10 appearances for Flamengo this season since joining last summer
The former Fluminense starlet joined Flamengo last summer but could already make a return to west London.
Kenedy impressed in 10 appearances for Flamengo, who won the Brazilian title last season.
And the Brazilian side are said to be desperate to retain the full-back and have tried to prevent Chelsea from recalling him, according to reports in Brazil.
Flamengo had the option of buying Kenedy at the end of his loan deal and were due to signal in December whether he intended to do so, but did not contact Chelsea.
