Man Utd, Liverpool, Man City and Everton scouts all set to watch same transfer target | Football | Sport


Four Premier League sides have sent scouts to Berlin to watch Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey take on Bayern Munich in the German Cup final on Saturday. Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Everton are all reportedly weighing up a summer move.

Bailey was a star player for the Leverkusen side who qualified for the Champions League last season.

However, the 22-year-old was unable to help his team repeat that feat as they finished fifth in the Bundesliga this term.

Failure to qualify for Europe’s premier competition could see a number of their stars depart at the end of the season.

But first Leverkusen will get a golden chance to land some silverware when they take on Bundesliga champions Bayern in the German Cup final.

Sky Sports claim United, Liverpool, City and Everton scouts will all be in attendance at the behind-closed-doors match.

Bailey could apparently be allowed to move to the Premier League this summer for a reasonable fee of between £20million and £30m.

United are looking for alternatives transfers in case they cannot get Borussia Dortmund to budge on their £115m valuation of Jadon Sancho.

City are looking for a replacement for Leroy Sane, who has joined Bayern. Liverpool will lose Xherdan Shaqiri and Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti wants to build a side capable of challenging for the title.

All four sides have a chance of landing the Jamaican international as Sky Sports claim he is open to moving to the UK.

Chelsea are also expected to have scouts at the match as they continue to monitor versatile midfielder Kai Havertz.

The Germany international is valued at £90m and Frank Lampard only needs to give the green light for negotiations to begin.

Leverkusen defender Wendell claims his team-mate Kai Havertz “dreams” of playing in the Premier League.

“Psychologically, the Germans are very focused people,” Wendell said.

“They are very concentrated on what they want. If he goes to the Premier League, he will learn a lot.

“I think Kai dreams of playing there. He has that desire, and I think if he decides to play in England he will be a success.”
