Chelsea transfer news: Leon Bailey ‘pictured in Blues shirt’ to ramp up speculation

CHELSEA fans have gone into meltdown over a picture of transfer target Leon Bailey in a Blues shirt.

Antonio Conte is keen to bolster his squad this month as the battle to finish in the top four heats up.

Manchester City hold a seemingly unassailable lead at the top of the table leaving Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal to battle for the Champions League places.

Liverpool have already acted quickly by splashing £75million on Virgil van Dijk while United are expected to complete a deal for Alexis Sanchez in the coming days.

And Arsenal have been linked with a host of names including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Bordeaux star Malcom.

Chelsea managed to sign Ross Barkley on a cut-price deal earlier this month but Conte is eager to add more signings.

Bailey has often been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge and his scintillating performances for Bayer Leverkusen this season haven’t gone unnoticed by Chelsea.

But an old tweet from Bailey has resurfaced on social media picturing Bailey in a Chelsea shirt with Blues supporters urging the club to push through a deal now.

One user posted: “We are linked with this player!!! It’s great when the player is a secret @ChelseaFC fan!!!!”
While another couldn’t hide their excitement: “CHELSEA SIGN HIM NOW!!!!!!”

Bailey admitted last week his dream is to one day play in the Premier League, and the picture of him in a Chelsea top could suggest that is where he wants to play.

“Of course I have a dream club, but I will not tell,” Bailey said.

“Basically, England was and still is my dream. And if I keep working hard, I’m sure it will work someday. The change to Bayer was just the right step for my development.”
