Bayer Leverkusen forward Leon Bailey, reportedly a target for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, has been told to avoid a transfer to Chelsea as Eden Hazard remains at the London club.

Ex-Premier League ‘keeper, now TV pundit, Shaka Hislop believes that the Belgian star could prevent the Jamaican winger from flourishing at the Blues.

Speaking about a possible move to the Premier League, as reported by the Daily Star, Shaka feared that a move now could scupper Leon’s development as a player.

“I think Hazard is going to be there for a while. He’s playing well, I think he’s enjoying his football. I felt that if Hazard was leaving Chelsea and soon, it would have been the summer just gone. It hasn’t happened.”

“Leon Bailey is enjoying life in Germany and let that continue. There’s no rush to get to Chelsea so you can say that Eden Hazard is your team-mate. If you aren’t playing, you aren’t learning or growing in the game”

Bailey has been heavily connected with a move to the Premier League and specifically, Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea.

The likes of Arsenal and Liverpool have also briefly been connected with a move for the winger.
