English Premier League outfit Chelsea are close to sealing a deal for German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey in coming days, according to reports from Germany.
The report claimed that the West London side have already made official contact for the star player while talks are expected to resume so as to have the deal finalized before the end of this January winter transfer window.
According to The Mirror, the Blues have held talks with Leon Bailey and an agreement seem to have been reached but the deal is currently being threatened by the interest from their English Premier League rivals Tottenham and Arsenal.
Leon Bailey’s representative has therefore confirmed that talks have been held between his client and Italian boss Maurizio Sarri who wishes to have his service at the Stamford Bridge.
The speculations of Leon Bailey’s exit from the German Bundesliga outfit came as a result of his lack of playing time at the club. He has only seen 8 games so far this season which is not enough for a growing player.
However, the outcome of the talks between both teams will determine the success of the deal as Leon Bailey will not wish to join the West London side and continue as a bench player.
