Borussia Dortmund’s star Leon Bailey is one of the most sought after youngsters this summer as top European clubs are vying for his signature.
The Jamaican star was a revelation for Borussia Dortmund during last season but he could be a step away from the Westfalenstadion ahead of the coming season, according to reports.
Chelsea, United, Barcelona Arsenal and Liverpool were once linked with the 20-year-old player.
United, Arsenal, Barcelona and Liverpool are reportedly out of the deal as each of them have gotten another winger this summer.
Chelsea were the only club left in the race for his services until Serie A giants AS Roma showed interest in the player, who is described as the face of Jamaica football.
However, the Blues-who have signed only Jorginho so far- are desperate eager to beat their Serie A counterparts for the youngster.
Roma were denied the chance to sign Brazilian winger Malcom last week when Barcelona made a last-minute move to hijack the player’s signature. They have now turned their attention to Bailey, whom they are ready to do all they could to capture his services ahead of Chelsea.
In other Chelsea news, Brazil Star Willian has reportedly snubbed Mourinho’s offer to remain at Stamford Bridge for another season.
The 29-year-old is believed to be heading to Old Trafford this week but that seems to be a mere speculation as he has committed his future to the Blues.
