Reported Liverpool target Leon Bailey's emphatic response when asked about his future

Reported Liverpool target Leon Bailey's emphatic response when asked about his future

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.

"What I can say is that my full focus to develop as a young player", he said.

The 20-year-old has been linked with Chelsea and Arsenal, while reports in Germany have suggested Liverpool may also be in the hunt to sign him. "If a club wants me then they must talk to Bayer".

Bayer Leverkusen have slapped a €50 million price-tag on Leon Bailey, a player reportedly being watched by Liverpool.

Asked specifically abut the three clubs, Bailey told Kicker: 'there's concrete interest.

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.

Bailey is now under contract with Leverkusen until 2022, earning just £7000-per-week and the English giants know they could offer far more.

Manchester City have expressed an interest in signing Bailey, while Bayern Munich submitted a £53m offer to Leverkusen in May.

With just three days left to complete any final transfers, the chances are that Bailey won't be on the move this summer - but watch this space.

"He has got special abilities, he is incredibly fast and great at dribbling", Bender told Goal . This example shows that football is a fast-paced business.

"He is only 20 years old and therefore still has development potential".

Bayer's Bundesliga campaign begins on August 25 with a trip to Borussia Monchengladbach.
