Reported Chelsea target Leon Bailey scored an outstanding back-heel goal for Bayer Leverkusen in their 4-1 win against Hoffenheim on Saturday, and Blues fans have urged their club to sign the winger.

The Mirror reported this month that the Premier League holders, along with top flight rivals Arsenal and Manchester United, are all interested in the 20-year-old winger following an impressive debut season with the Bundesliga outfit.
The Mirror says that the Jamaican attacker could fetch a fee in excess of £40m, and his goal and assist on Saturday means that he has now scored seven goals and provided a further five assists in 16 German top division appearances this term.
Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on Bailey’s goal and latest display via social media, and while one said ‘I would rather have Bailey than Mahrez’, another urged the club to “go and get him”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

I will rather have Bailey than Mahrez,Faster, more direct,better crosser…. A bigger risk though short-term but make more sense Longterm…. Mahrez can't do any better than he is already doing currently….he is no different from Willian… Blow hot and cold quickly #CFC
