Bundesliga star Leon Bailey hang out with Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi in London at the weekend amid Premier League interest.
Chelsea saw a bid of over £20million turned down by Bayer Leverkusen for Bailey last January. The Blues though, have not been put off and are confident they can strike a deal for the hugely-talented 20-year-old in the summer.
Chelsea have been watching Bailey in action in Germany for months, but Liverpool and United are poised to spark a bidding war.
Ndidi took to Instagram to post a picture of himself with Chelsea target with the caption: ”Glad to see my crazy son today!! Bless up bro.”
Leverkusen will demand an incredible fee for their most prized asset, with club officials already telling suitors Bailey will cost upwards of £100m.
Bailey has been in fine form this season with ten goals and five assists in 22 appearances.
Bailey moved to the Bundesliga from Genk 12 months ago and has made a huge impact.
Mirror claim Bailey is the man leading the list of potential replacements for Philippe Coutinho.
