Aston Villa are €5m off meeting Bayer Leverkusen’s valuation for Leon Bailey, according to Bild.
And, as to be expected, a number of Villa supporters have been sharing their thoughts to the update on social media.
Bild suggest that Villa’s first offer for the Jamaican was worth €30m, with Leverkusen holding out for €35m.
Will Villa sign Bailey?
Yes, have faith!
Don't think we will!
Leverkusen’s valuation converts to just shy of £29.8m, which, should a deal go through at that price, would make Bailey Villa’s third-most expensive signing of all time behind Ollie Watkins and Emiliano Buendia.
The Daily Mail were the first to link Bailey with a move to Villa Park last week, and it seems as if Villa have stepped up their interest.
Villa fans react
These Villa fans were quick to reply, with some sharing their excitement and others urging the club to pay the difference.
“It’s almost time”
“Johan Lange, officially the best scout on the planet.”
“Just pay it. Please”
“HURRY UP AND PAY IT THEN LADS”
“Just do it villa”
“GET IT DONE RIGHT NOW”
