Sky Sports understand that Liverpool will begin scouting Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey following the news that the winger is keen on a move to the Premier League.

The 22-year-old could be available for around £20-30 million and although he has three years left on his current contract, he is looking to secure a move to England sooner rather than later.

The Jamaican international has been at Leverkusen since 2017 and has netted five league goals this season, providing three assists.

Leverkusen will face Bayern Munich in the DFB Pokal final tomorrow at 7pm, where scouts from Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Everton are all set to watch the winger.

The final presents a final chance for Bailey to impress his potential suitors from England and could be the first stepping stone in a move to the Premier League.

Due to his English grandparents, Bailey did have an option to represent England at an international level but ultimately decided that he would play for his native Jamaica.


A young, promising winger would be welcome in the Liverpool squad to provide back up to Sadie Mane or Mohamed Salah.

Bayer Leverkusen narrowly missed out on Champions League football this season and another one of their wonder-kids, Kai Havertz, looks set to leave too.

Half of Bailey’s appearances this season have come from the substitutes bench, so he may be looking for a move.

However, as with pretty much any winger in the world right now, joining Liverpool would mean that game time would be sparse and it may take them a few seasons to break into the starting line-up, given how well Mane and Salah have performed.
