Per the German media outlet, Aston Villa have made an offer for the 23-year-old winger, who would be allowed to leave for the right price.
"Bayer Leverkusen want to let him go," Sky journalist Max Bielefeld is quoted as saying.
"Internally, it's believed that it would probably be better for both sides to part ways."
However, 'Die Werkself' don't want to let Bailey go below value. According to Transfermarkt, the Jamaican international is worth €35 million.
Bailey, who still has two years left on his contract, scored 15 goals and made 11 assists in 40 games last season.
