Chelsea scout again Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey

Chelsea are stepping up their interest in Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea have followed Bailey since he first arrived in Belgium from Jamaica as a 15-year-old with his adoptive father and guardian Craig Butler.

He moved to Bayer Leverkusen from Genk last summer for an initial £12.75million and has settled in quickly, scoring four goals and making a further four assists.

Bailey impressed again as Leverkusen beat Stuttgart 2-0 on Friday and Chelsea are keen to test the Bundesliga side's resolve.

Chelsea are understood to have held a meeting regarding Bailey on Friday as they try to ascertain what it would take to sign him.
