Chelsea have revived interest in Bayer Leverkusen Winger Leon Bailey.
Much hinges on the Stamford Bridge club’s appeal to CAS over their transfer ban while Leverkusen are also asking £80million for 21-year-old Bailey
Chelsea want young versatile wingers who can be phased in to replace Eden Hazard plus the ageing Willian and Pedro.
Though he has endured a difficult season, Bailey showed signs that he can recapture the form that caught Chelsea’s attention over a year ago.
Leverkusen though have already seen Julian Brandt join Borussia Dortmund while Kai Havertz is due to join Bayern Munich next year.
Chelsea have Christian Pulisic to integrate this summer while they are also among the clubs to ask about David Neres at Ajax.
The Dutch will sell the Brazilian to the highest bidder with Arsenal, Everton and Liverpool among those interested.
