As per a report from Goal.com this afternoon, Manchester City are the latest club to express an interest in Bayer Leverkusen prodigy Leon Bailey.

Blistering youngster

Bailey, a 20-year-old Jamaican winger, only made the move to the BayArena in January of last year for a fee of 20 million Euro, following links with the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United.

The pacy starlet caught the eye with his performances in the Europa League for Belgian outfit Genk last season, and has racked up 12 goals and 6 assists in 32 domestic appearances to this point in the campaign with Leverkusen (25 starts).

In-demand

However, despite having not yet even completed his first full season in the Bundesliga, Bailey has already been heavily linked with a departure from Germany, with a number of Europe’s biggest clubs known to maintain an interest in his services.

Reports stemming from England earlier this year claimed that Chelsea had emerged as the leading contenders for his signature, with the Daily Mail having even gone as far as to suggest that the Blues had seen a 25 million Euro January offer rejected by Leverkusen.
