Tottenham Hotspur interested in 23-year-old Bundesliga star who wants PL transfer



Leon Bailey keen on Premier League transfer, with Tottenham interested

According to Sky Sports, Bayer Leverkusen’s Jamaican winger Leon Bailey is keen on securing a transfer to the Premier League this summer and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing him.

The 23-year-old Bailey started out at Phoenix All Stars Jamaica, before earning a move to Austrian outfit USK Anif in 2011. He had a stint in Slovakia with AS Trencin, before signing for Belgian outfit KRC Genk, where he announced himself as a star in the making.

On the back of a series of impressive displays, Bailey earned a switch to German giants Bayer Leverkusen, where he has continued to enhance his reputation. The 23-year-old has racked up 24 goals and 15 assists in 116 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit till date.

The 2019/20 campaign wasn’t Bailey’s best though, as he had troubles with injury. He ended the campaign with seven goals and three assists from 33 appearances across all competitions. (h/t Transfermarkt)

After a dour start to the 2020/21 campaign against Everton, Tottenham could do with a player of Bailey’s ilk, who can add that element of ingenuity and flair in the final third. However, as per the report, the 23-year-old is likely to cost around £40m, which might deter the club from making a move.

The Jamaican international still has three years left on his contract, which will put Leverkusen in a strong negotiating position. In addition, Bailey is attracting interest from Spurs’ PL rivals Everton as well. So, a move to Tottenham for the 23-year-old this summer may be unlikely.
