£70m Bundesliga star confirms Chelsea and Liverpool interest

The Jamaican winger now plies his trade in Germany with Bayer Leverkusen but has been linked with moves to several English clubs in recent months, as well as AS Roma and Bayern Munich.

On Monday, the player told reporters when asked about Liverpool and Chelsea: "There's concrete interest".

While there is interest from England, Bailey, who scored or assisted 18 goals in 34 appearances last season, is only focused on starring for Leverkusen this season. What I can say is that my full focus is on developing myself as a young player.

They signed the 20-year-old from Genk for just £18million and could secure a tidy profit just a year and a half after recruiting him. New manager Unai Emery is supposedly content with the options he has upfront, but was thought to add some width to the attack by roping in a talented winger with Bailey as the primary target. "If a club wants me, my management and Leverkusen will take care of it".

Chelsea were linked with him while he was still playing in Belgium, but it was Bayer Leverkusen whose pursuit of the Jamaican proved fruitful.

"He has got special abilities, he is incredibly fast and great at dribbling".

The 20-year-old is rated as one of the brightest young prospects in Europe following his impressive breakthrough season in the Bundesliga.

'We want to play for the title.

"It is important that he handles the hype around him correctly and does not want too much too fast".
