Chelsea fans have been thrown into a frenzy after photos of their transfer target Leon Bailey surfaced, with the Jamaican star in a blue Chelsea Jersey, per reports.
Antonio Conte is currently dissatisfied with the current state of his attack and he has resorted to playing with just a striker and a winger. The Italian manager is yet on the look out for a winger that will complement the efforts of Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata.
Chelsea may not be able to win the Premier League title but a battle for second spot is on. However, reinforcement are needed to fortify the otherwise strong squad of the Blues.
Liverpool have already bolstered their squad with the £75million signing of Dutch centre back Virgil Van Dijk, and Man United are already close to completing a deal for Alexis Sanchez.
The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Bordeaux star Malcom.
Meanwhile, Chelsea added a midfielder in Ross Barkley but the English star is yet to make his debut as he just recovered from an injury spell.
Bailey, 20, has been heavily linked with a move for Chelsea. His barnstorming form for Bayer Leverkusen have not gone unnoticed – he has scored 6 goals in 11 Bundesliga starts this and has been heavily tipped to succeed.
An old tweet of the star wearing a Chelsea Jersey has emerged on Social media and fans of the Blues have called on their club to sign the youngster.

“Of course I have a dream club, but I will not tell,” Bailey said.

He is valued at 28,00 Mill. € according to transfermarkt.
