Chelsea handed big boost in Bundesliga star chase
Chelsea have been handed a big boost in their race to sign Leon Bailey. They Bayer Leverkusen star has admitted that he is keen on a move to the Premier League.
Bailey told Bild: “Of course I have a dream club, but I will not tell. Basically England was and still is my dream. And if I keep working hard, I’m sure it will work someday. “
Unfortunately for Chelsea, they are not the only club chasing him. Manchester United and Arsenal are also said to be interested in signing him and are scouting him.
Chelsea have reportedly already had a £20 million rejected for him and are readying a second bid for him.
The Blues are willing to sign him in January and then send him back on loan for the rest of the season. Bayer, however, are said to be not at all interested in selling him but Chelsea are confident of getting him for around £25 million.
