23-year-old Bailey’s performances of late have garnered interest from a host of top clubs but Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund are said to be making him a major transfer target – according to reports from transfermarkt.de.


The former Genk winger is currently on a deal with Leverkusen until June 2023.

He is currently worth in the range of €30-35m. Previously, clubs such as Arsenal, Roma and Leicester City have shown interest in Bailey’s services.

Bailey is a versatile winger capable of donning multiple roles in the final-third, especially as an inverted winger and a support striker.

The Jamaican international has so far made 136 appearances for Leverkusen, scoring 39 goals in the process. Almost half of those goals arrived in 2020/21 - as he scored 15 and assisted 11 in the course of 40 games.
