Bayer Leverkusen Managing Director Michael Schade says Leon Bailey is “a highly interesting player,” but has confirmed that there has been nothing concrete in terms of making an offer, report Kicker.
With the return of Karim Bellarabi to the starting XI for Leverkusen, sporting director Rudi Völler told Sky Deutschland: “If nothing severe happens, we will not do anything anymore.”
A move for Bailey would see any potential suitor have to pay KRC Genk around €20 million for the 19-year-old, whilst Serie A club AS Roma are also interested in signing the Jamaica international.
Bailey held talks with Genk’s boardroom staff on Sunday regarding his future. With a contract until 2020, reports from Belgium suggest he could be sold in the summer, if not sooner.
