- Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey could be on his way to Chelsea next year
- The Blues are preparing a mega deal for the 20-year-old Jamaican in January
- Spanish club Barcelona are also interested in signing the player
Premier League champions Chelsea are reportedly lining up £20 million mega deal for the signing of Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey.
According to the report by Sunsport, the Blues have tried three times to sign the 20-year-old Jamaican, but all their efforts were futile.
His current contract at the German club will expire in the year 2022, and Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has reportedly told the Blues' chiefs to go for him in January 2018.
Chelsea are understood to be willing to loan him back to his current club immediately in return for completing a deal next January.
But the Blues must be aware of the fact that Spanish giants Barcelona are also interested in the player and will make their move next year.
Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Chelsea coach Antonio Conte told the club that the Blues need to sign more players when the January 2018 transfer window opens.
