Milan mull Bailey bid

13th February 2018, 14:01 by Aidan Perkins

Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey is said to be attracting attention from Italian giants AC Milan.

Calcio Mercato claims the 20-year-old is a top summer target for Milan after his impressive campaign for Leverkusen.

The Jamaican-born ace has bagged eight goals in 19 appearances so far this season and he's also been linked with moves to both Liverpool and Chelsea.

Milan have now joined the race to sign him, with sporting director Massimo Mirabelli apparently identifying Bailey as a player he wants at the San Siro for next season - and he's not being put off by Bayer's £35million asking price.

Bailey has been with Leverkusen for 12 months now and his reputation has grown in that time, with 10 goals and six assists for them in 32 appearances in all competitions.
