Loads of Liverpool fans have been giving their verdict on some comments from Leon Bailey, as the Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid said the Reds were interested in signing him this summer.

According to reports, Liverpool are the latest Premier League club to show an interest in Bailey.

The young winger was linked with a move away from Bayer Leverkusen all summer, and he has now spoken out about the exit links.

“Manchester United, City, Chelsea, Liverpool – a lot of clubs were interested,” the 21-year-old said in an interview with FourFourTwo.

It is perhaps a surprise to see Liverpool included, as the Reds captured Xherdan Shaqiri very early to add to their wing department.

Bailey may be seen as a long term replacement for Sadio Mane though, who is the only one of the Reds’ front three not to have signed a new contract.

The Anfield favourite’s recent comments didn’t exactly fill fans with confidence that he will sign a new deal, and Bailey’s raw speed, versatility and lethal finishing is reminiscent of a young Mane.

79 per cent of fans want to sign the youngster, and you can view the full poll results down below…
