Bundesliga giants Bayer Leverkusen have moved to confirm their interest in Genk forward Leon Bailey.
The Jamaican football has caught the eye of top European sides with some scintillating showings in Europa League and Belgian First Division A, and it appears that a big club move is on the cards.
Manchester United have been keeping close tabs on the youngster’s services of late, but Bayer Leverkusen could be the first side to make concrete moves.
It was die Werkself head coach Roger Schmidt who admitted that he is keen on bringing Bailey to Bay Arena.
“He’s got a lot of pace, he’s technically skilled, and someone we are looking at in the long run,” Schmidt told the Rheinische Post on Monday. “Everything else would be derelict.”
Leon Bailey has so far managed 15 goals and 21 assists in 77 competitive outings for Genk and he especially impressed in this year’s Europa League.
The talented forward started a total of 12 Europa League fixtures for the Belgian giants this term and scored no fewer than 7 goals.
