Chelsea maintain an interest in signing Aston Villa winger Leon Bailey with the Blues expected to tap into the transfer market for reinforcements to overhaul their front line.
Graham Potter, who was recently appointed to the top job at Stamford Bridge, is looking to add to his options in the attacking third of the pitch after his side’s recent dismal form saw them lose three games in a row.
According to a report from football.london, it is hinted that the west London outfit are keeping tabs on Villa first-team Leon Bailey, who had been linked with a move to Chelsea he left Bayern Leverkusen to sign for Villa last year.
Bailey endured a difficult debut campaign in the Premier League due to recurring injury problems, but the 2022-23 season saw consistent performances from the Jamaica international with four goals to his name.
Chelsea’s interest in moving in for Bailey could spell the end of first-team pariah Christian Pulisic, with the US striker likely to quit at the bridge after his fall down the pecking order.
