According to ESPN, Liverpool have joined Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Chelsea in the race for the highly-rated Bayer Leverkusen prodigy Leon Bailey.
The 20-year-old winger has been revelation during the Bundesliga season, and Leverkusen are unlikely to manage to keep him at the BayArena next summer.
Along with Julian Brandt and Kai Havertz, the Jamaica international is the hottest property of the German giants, and they intend to keep them for years to come.
On the other hand, the Reds are desperate to find a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, a player who can provide some depth and an additional quality to their attacking ranks, and Bailey is a type of player that fits Jurgen Klopp requirements. However, the Merseysiders have to beat their Premier League rivals to secure his signature.
Bailey won’t come cheap, as Leverkusen are looking for a substantial figure to renounce his services, and some reports have suggested they are asking around £100 million.
