Bayer Leverkusen name asking price for Premier League target

Bayer Leverkusen have opened the door for Premier League teams who are interested in their winger, Leon Bailey to get the Jamaican next summer.

Reports in the German media is claiming that the Chelsea target have had a price tag of £45 million slapped on his head as the German club expect a bidding war to drive it up.

This report comes from Bild who has been discussing several German Bundesliga youngsters who are linked with moves to the Premier League including Christian Pulisic to Liverpool.

The Jamaican is enjoying a breakout season in the German top flight, but he and his club appear not to be in a hurry to see his back. That explains why they reportedly rejected a £25 million offer from Chelsea in January.

Bailey has spoken of his desire to play in the Premier League in the nearest future, and he remains really good friends with Premier League stars like Raheem Sterling.

Leverkusen are expecting a bidding war from the top European sides after this season, a situation that could drive his transfer fee up. However, before a big club would consider moving for him, Bailey would need to replicate the form he showed in the first half of the season in this concluding part.
