Leverkusen ready to resist Arsenal bid for Leon Bailey

Leverkusen ready to resist Arsenal bid for Leon Bailey”

The 20-year-old forward only completed a move to Germany in January, having first caught the eye in Belgium with Genk.

Arsenal are never without their own transfer conundrums, and with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez both stalling on their futures at the Gunners, Arsene Wenger must devise a contingency plan.

Jamaican worldwide Bailey joined Leverkusen for €20m from Belgian side Genk and is now under contract with the German club until the summer of 2022.

Chelsea's manager Antonio Conte sees the young Jamaican as a long term replacement for Brazilian worldwide Willian.

But both will find that there is competition from overseas with clubs from Italy and Spain also monitoring the situation of Bailey and ready to pounce.

Clubs from Spain and Italy are closely monitoring Bailey, however it looked like Chelsea were in pole-position to bag the speedy Jamaican next month.

Bailey is an adaptable option and is able to deputise at the spearhead of the attack as well as on the flanks, making him a desirable, practical target for those in the hunt for his flourishing qualities.

Bailey has been a key figure for Leverkusen this season, with his contribution to the collective cause helping to bring him to the attention of Europe's leading clubs once again.

The winger has scored four goals and made four assists in 13 Bundesliga appearances for Bayer Leverkusen so far this season.
