The Reds will do big business this summer. Michael Edwards will be offloading mountains of deadwood and will be squeezing each gullible buyer for every last penny. With funds raised from sales and the new megabucks kit deal with Nike, we can expect big money buys. Liverpool have recently been linked with an £85m move for Leon Bailey, Kopites have had their say.
The Express are just one of a number of outlets reporting that Liverpool are set to rival Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea for Leon Bailey.
The report has suggested a fee of £85m and has claimed that Bayer Leverkusen would rather sell to a Premier League side than German Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich.
The winger has had a tough season having missed a lot of football due to injuries. When he has been fit and fighting he has notched five goals and an assist across seven starts and seven sub appearances.
At just 22-years-old he has plenty of time to improve and turn his injury record around.

With The Reds having already been linked with a big money move for his teammate Kai Havertz, we could end up spending a lot of money at Leverkusen.
This Liverpool fan believes that Bailey is even better than Timo Werner.
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.

Whilst this Kopite wants them both.
Bailey + Werner would be a fun summer https://t.co/G74AckLo2Z

One supporter was quick to point out the disparity between the players.
Bailey is no where near Liverpool’s level just shows how much PL fans actually know about football

But this Red has faith in Bailey.
Not gonna lie he will destroy PL like Mane

His rumoured allegiance could be something of a stumbling block though.
He is a man united fan all his life. Makes no sense.

One thing seems certain though, we will be buying somebody from Bayer Leverkusen.
We may give Leverkusen 85m…. But it won’t be for Bailey
