Leon Bailey news

Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey favours a move to English side Chelsea over French club Paris Saint-Germain, according to German outlet Fussball Transfers.

In August, the Jamaican signed a new five-year deal that will keep him with the Bundesliga side until 2023.

According to the report, Bailey is in favour of a January move to Chelsea in order to join Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.

Apart from Chelsea and PSG, the winger has also been linked with a move to Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.

After scoring 9 goals and providing 6 assists for Bayer in 30 Bundesliga games last season, the 21-year-old has started this term fairly well, scoring once in two league matches.

Being a goalscoring winger, it is no surprise that clubs around Europe are looking to get his signature. If he is able to continue improving, it won't be long before one of the top clubs in Europe come with a huge bid for the youngster.
