- Match Analysis
Bailey has made quite an impact in his first season for Bayer Leverkusen. He has scored 6 goals in his 10 league appearances which has caught the attention of some big clubs from England.
Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are all keeping tabs on the young winger. It is believed that Arsenal even scouted the player twice in the last couple of weeks.
The Gunners were looking to strengthen their team in the summer by signing Thomas Lemar from Monaco in the summer. They may now look to sign Bailey, a player of a similar profile.
According to reports, Arsenal are willing to offer £30 million for the player but it remains to be seen whether Leverkusen would be willing to sell for that amount.
Meanwhile even Manchester United were looking to sign Ivan Perisic in the summer but the player signed a new contract with the club.
As for Chelsea, Conte was not happy with the squad since the beginning of the season and is looking to add depth to compete in the various competition the club is in the race for.
However, Leverkusen are still in the Champions League and the club would do everything it can to keep hold of their star players.
Speaking to HLN last November Bailey said, “I have always dreamt of the Premier League. The important thing is that in the near future there a lot of games to come. This is essential for me because I have to take more steps. I have already made a lot of progress.”
