Leon Bailey reveals 'concrete interest' in transfer

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 06/08/2018 - 12:38

Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey has suggested that there is "concrete interest" from both Chelsea and Liverpool in securing his signature this summer.

The 20-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bundesliga in recent months, with reports claiming that the Blues had prioritised a £40 million ($52m) move for the winger, after missing out on Malcom, who joined Barcelona from Bordeaux.

Bailey has impressed during his time at Leverkusen, making a total of 44 appearances and scoring 12 goals, while also laying on seven assists.

Capable of playing on both the left and the right flank, Bailey has been marked out as a star-in-the-making, and he has suggested that there are Premier League clubs interested in luring him away from Germany.

When asked specifically about interest from Chelsea, Liverpool and Serie A side Roma, Bailey told Kicker: "There's concrete interest.

"What I can say is that my full focus is on developing myself as a young player, and that's what I'll focus on. If a club wants me, my management and Bayer 04 will take care of it."

For now, Bailey is solely focused on the upcoming Bundesliga season, and is hopeful of challenging for the title, despite Leverkusen finishing fifth last season, 29 points behind eventual champions Bayern Munich.

"We want to play for the title. Bayern Munich is one of the three strongest teams in the world for me, but in football you never know. We have to be focused, then we can do a lot with our quality to reach our goal."

A raft of clubs have been linked with the Jamaica-born star this summer, with Roma, who were previously close to buying Malcom, having emerged as a potential suitor.

Other major clubs have also been associated with the youngster over the course of the transfer window, including Bayern Munich and Manchester City.

Leverkusen captain Sven Bender, however, wants to see the attacker remain at Bayer for the long term.

"He has got special abilities, he is incredibly fast and great at dribbling," Bender told Goal. "But we did not expect that he would explode that fast. This example shows that football is a fast-paced business.

"It is important that he handles the hype around him correctly and does not want too much too fast. Now everybody comes to him and suddenly wants something from him.

"He is only 20 years old and therefore still has development potential. He is a great player and will probably leave one day for a high fee, but I wish him to stay with us for a long time."

Bayer's Bundesliga campaign begins on August 25 with a trip to Borussia Monchengladbach.

Liverpool on red alert for final Fekir move

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 06/08/2018 - 11:15

Liverpool could make one final attempt to land France star Nabil Fekir amid reports Lyon are ready to sell.

The Anfield club have long been linked with a move for the midfielder and have until Thursday afternoon to complete a deal.

Liverpool came within hours of announcing the transfer before this summer's World Cup but pulled out of the switch due to concerns about Fekir's medical.

He went on to win the World Cup with France but appeared set to remain in his homeland.

But according to daily newspaper L'Equipe, Lyon would allow Fekir to depart if they receive an appropriate offer - believed to be upwards of £60million.

Liverpool 'in a sweet spot'

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Sun, 05/08/2018 - 15:10
Fabinho, Alisson, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri have arrived this summer

Last Updated: 05/08/18 1:23pm

2:10 Liverpool are in a 'sweet spot' and have more optimism going into a new season with huge optimism, say the Sunday Supplement panel. Liverpool are in a 'sweet spot' and have more optimism going into a new season with huge optimism, say the Sunday Supplement panel.

Liverpool are in a "sweet spot" and have more optimism going into a new season than the previous two or three decades, say the Sunday Supplement panel.

Jurgen Klopp's side finished fourth in the Premier League last season and reached the Champions League final, but have spent big this summer in order to bridge the 25-point gap between themselves and Manchester City.

Fabinho, Alisson, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri have arrived for over £160m, and Matt Dickinson, chief sports writer at The Times, says the feeling is extremely positive at Anfield, and now was the correct time to spend.

He said on the Sunday Supplement: "I think the Liverpool ownership know they're in a sweet spot. They know they have one of the top managers in the world, they know they have a harmony with him.

"Jurgen Klopp has delivered what he said he would, playing the football he said he would deliver, they got into a Champions League football, so they're in a position of: if we're not going to throw money at it now, when are we going to?

"The signings should propel them. If anyone is going to give City a good run, it's Liverpool.

"They just look like a team ready to kick on. The trouble is: the small issue of Man City. If you're a Liverpool fan, you're probably as optimistic in pre-season as they have felt for 20, 30 years."

Football journalist Raphael Honigstein feels that while Premier League champions City need to drop significantly for Liverpool to have a chance of winning the title, the Reds have bought big at the right time.

On the pitch, Honigstein also feels Liverpool's explosive style against bigger sides must be adopted against the lesser sides in the Premier League.

"They need City to drop down a level or two to get anywhere near them, and then get to a point where they can grind out results against lesser opposition.

"It has been a problem for Klopp's team, especially without someone like Coutinho who can open the lock at times.

"It's interesting from a footballing sense, whether they can take that kind of explosiveness on the transition that works so wonderfully well against the big teams, especially in Europe, and make it work on an everyday basis against some of the more defensive sides. That is the key question.

"The club and the manager realise that now is the time. Maybe another year they may have said: 'OK let's wait, let this team grow, give them another chance.' But some of the fans, and some of the key players in that side would say: 'We don't have time to wait!'

"Now is the time to win stuff, now is the time to go for it, and luckily he has owners that really want to back him in that."
