Paul Robinson has suggested that Aston Villa may accept a Leon Baily offer – amid speculation that Chelsea are keen

Graham Potter is a man that is under real pressure already as boss and knows that he needs to sign some players in the coming transfer window in order to help improve his squad.

It is no secret that adding a new winger to the side is something that is on the mind of Potter and it seems that he is now ready to raid Aston Villa

The Daily Mail recently claimed that the club could be eyeing Aston Villa winger Bailey in the upcoming summer window.

The former Bayern Leverkusen forward had attracted interest from the Blues during his stint in Germany and now Graham Potter wants to get him to Stamford Bridge – the report adds

The report also says Another factor is that Christian Pulisic is pushing for a switch away from North London and Leon Bailey could serve as the perfect replacement for the American forward.

Now – amid all that speculation – Robinson has admitted that Villa may accept an offer for Bailey in January

Robinson said: “It will be interesting to see what the manager wants to do.

“There is a reason why Aston Villa are in a predicament. Was it the manager, the players or both?

“Emery has been brought in to improve the team and that might involve some difficult decisions. A lot will depend on what funds he has available.

“Bailey is a very good player and he has already looked better under Emery. I think he is capable of being a top player at Villa. I think Emery will use him as a regular between now and the end of the season.

“Most players fall victim to not being in the manager’s plans at some stage in their career. A lot will depend on how Bailey performs between now and the end of the season.”
