London club keeping tabs with Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey and planning to make a bid during the summer transfer window. Blues need a new prolific winger to strengthen the front-line and Jamaica international is the best choice in this situation.
He had a fantastic campaign and proved his worth one more time. Sarri set to spend considerable money on the player in July when the transfer window opens again. Arsenal, Liverpool and Inter Milan are also interested in signing him, and there will be a battle for the footballer.
The 21-year-old winger joined the German club from Genk in 2017 with a £14m deal. He became a key figure for the club and scored many incredible goals since joining. In this season, Jamaican superstar played 40 matches, scored five goals and provided five assists in all competition.
It is a great result, and he can improve his consequences with top-class partners. Leon has contracted with the Die Werkself until 2023, and his release clause is around £40m. He regularly plays in the national team which is already a significant achievement for the footballer.
Bailey helped Bayer Leverkusen to finish the Bundesliga in a fourth position and get the Champions League ticket. Probably he will accept the correct offer from the Italian coach.
Chelsea will do everything to add him this July as Eden Hazard moved to Real Madrid, Willian and Pedro already up to 30, Callum Hudson-Odoi linked with several clubs and they need back-up. English club also want to sign Welsh winger Gareth Bale, Benfica forward Joao Felix and PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
