Liverpool are apparently interested in Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey, according to The Express, and their supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
The Reds will hope to strengthen their position at the summit of English football during the summer.
If play does resume they should win the Premier League title at a canter but Jurgen Klopp will hope it’s the first of many.
Recent defeats to Watford, Chelsea in the FA Cup and Atletico Madrid in the Champions League have perhaps highlighted the need for reinforcements.
Although Liverpool have a strong core of starters, they could perhaps do with some strength in depth.
Bailey would certainly enhance the squad. The Leverkusen man scored his seventh of the season against Rangers in the Europa League last week.
He won’t come cheap though. The Express claim that it could take £85 million to sign the left-winger and that offers food for thought for Liverpool.
The Jamaican international is only 22 but that sum would seriously decimate Liverpool’s budget.
Nonetheless, he is quick, good with both feet and is capable of scoring goals and setting them up.
It does seem a divided fanbase when it comes to Bailey. The vast majority, however, seem convinced that he’d represent a good signing.
Here is a selection of tweets from Liverpool fans on the reported links to Bailey.
Would love him at Anfield. Excellent player, capable of playing either side of the front three. Brilliant first touch, pace and ability to beat the man / also could hit the byline. He was the stand out player last season. Head and shoulders above Werner.
