The Bayer Leverkusen winger has been mooted as a potential January option for a number of England’s biggest clubs and he would be keen on a move
Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey has revealed that it is his dream to play in the Premier League and suggested that he has the ideal club in mind.
The Jamaican stopped short at revealing who that particular club is, though, with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United having been linked with moves.
Bailey joined Leverkusen from Genk in January 2017 and has made 14 appearances in the Bundesliga so far this season, scoring an impressive six goals.
That has helped move his side into Champions League qualification contention, with Leverkusen currently fourth in the table, but Bailey admits that he would like to make the switch to England one day.
“Of course I have a dream club, but I will not tell. Basically England was and still is my dream,” he told Bild.

“And we have every chance to get into the Champions League. Europe is our big goal.”
