Sky Sports shared Aston Villa’s interest in Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey on Wednesday evening, which left a number of Villa fans excited on social media.
The Daily Mail shared the initial links to Bailey on Wednesday morning, suggesting Villa were eyeing up a £30m offer for the Jamaican.
The 23-year-old has been offered to Premier League clubs this summer, with Villa turning their attentions to Bailey after failing in their attempts to sign Emile Smith Rowe from Arsenal.
Bailey scored 15 goals and provided 11 assists for Leverkusen last season, playing in four different positions for the Bundesliga side.
Would Leon Bailey be a good signing for AVFC?
