Liverpool Keeping Close Tabs On Leon Bailey

Arsenal Thomas Lemar Premier League

According to reports from the Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are regularly monitoring the progress of Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey.

Liverpool have cooled their interest in Thomas Lemar, and have shifted their attention towards him.

Liverpool sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in last month's transfer window and failed to bring in a replacement capable of featuring on the left wing, but Bailey could occupy that slot if the Reds meet his valuation.

The 20-year-old has continued to develop in to one of the hottest young talents in Europe during his time in Germany having provided 10 goals and 5 assists in his 22 appearances so far this campaign. The Bayer Leverkusen forward is now seen as Liverpool's priority, but they will have to compete with sides such as Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and even FC Barcelona for the 20-year-old Jamaica global.

Bailey is emerging as a key target for the trio but it looks like they'll face fresh competition as the Mirror claim that Liverpool have now joined the race for the Jamaican youngsters signature.

The report also claims that Bailey will not come cheap, because German club will demand around £100m for the speedy attacker.
