Odds slashed on Chelsea signing Leon Bailey ahead of Liverpool

English clubs have been sniffing around Leon Bailey for a good while now and the odds suggest he’s heading for London and not Liverpool…


Highly rated Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey has today confirmed “concrete interest” from Chelsea and Liverpool in signing him this week.

As a result, bookmakers Paddy Power made Stamford Bridge his most likely destination, cutting the odds from 8/1 to 12/5 this morning.

Meanwhile, he’s 5/1 from 20/1 to join Jurgen Klopp at Anfield, despite reports suggesting they have no plans to sign anyone else before the window shuts. Oh, that really would upset Jose Mourinho!

Outside of the Premier League, he’s 7/1 to join Roma and 9/1 to stay in Germany by heading to Bayern Munich.

Asked about the Jamaican spokesman Paddy Power said: “Leon Bailey has kindly shaken up the transfer rumours this morning – by saying Chelsea and Liverpool are after his signature.

“It’s a move that will no doubt be worth plenty of cash, and Chelsea look to be winning the fight so far. May the best club win.”
