The 25-year-old is considered to be the best football player in Jamaica. He has also left his mark at the international stage after netting three goals in 18 senior appearances for the Jamaica national team.

Leon Bailey has been in impressive form for Aston Villa this season and it looks like he caught the eye of many European clubs including Chelsea.

Graham Potter wants to sign a new winger and Bailey is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The Chelsea manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move this winter.

The Blues are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

The former Bayer Leverkusen man will add a new dimension to Chelsea’s attack.

According to the report, “Chelsea are interested in Aston Villa winger Leon Bailey. The Daily Mail says Chelsea are keen to inject more pace into their frontline and have already lined up a January move for France striker Christopher Nkunku from Red Bull Leipzig, but Bailey is also under consideration, especially if offers arrive for Christian Pulisic who is keen to gain more regular game time. The American has made it clear to the Blues that he wants more minutes on the pitch, but has been wayward in his attempts to show Graham Potter why he deserves that. So far Pulisic has only managed a single goal and two assists in 18 appearances in all competitions before the mid-season break for the World Cup – where he is set to represent the USA in Group B. Wealthy Villa do not need to sell Bailey but will back new boss Unai Emery in the transfer market and have been assessing the likes of highly-rated Villarreal winger Nicolas Jackson, 21, who is out of contract next summer.”

The Villans would be wise to keep the Jamaica international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

A winger of Bailey’s ceiling will be a massive addition to Chelsea squad as he will not only improve the overall quality of Potter’s starting XI but also add some stability and variety to his attacking department.
