Bayer Leverkusen forward Leon Bailey has revealed that there is "concrete interest" from both Chelsea and Liverpool in securing his services this summer.

Leon Bailey, the impressive 20-year old for German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, has recently been linked with a switch to west London, along with rivals clubs and the news today is encouraging for Blues fans.

"What I can say is that my full focus is on developing myself as a young player, and that's what I'll focus on".

'If a club wants me, my management and Bayer will take care of it'.

He did not score a league goal after February 17, with his form fading away toward the end of the campaign, but clubs such as Roma, Chelsea and Liverpool have reportedly shown interest.

Gazzetta Dello Sport report that the Bundesliga outfit has named its price for Bailey, with bids of around £45million to be considered.

While there is interest from England, Bailey, who scored or assisted 18 goals in 34 appearances last season, is only focused on starring for Leverkusen this season.

The Jamaican winger now plies his trade in Germany with Bayer Leverkusen but has been linked with moves to several English clubs in recent months, as well as AS Roma and Bayern Munich.

We dearly hope that our interest in signing Bailey turns into something more concrete. This example shows that football is a fast-paced business. Now everybody comes to him and suddenly wants something from him. "He is a great player and will probably leave one day for a high fee, but I wish him to stay with us for a long time".
