Arsenal have been quoted by The Express as holding an interest in Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey during the summer transfer window.
The 22-year-old is valued at £85 million by the Bundesliga outfit and Chelsea are thought to be interested too.
Arsenal are unlikely to qualify for the Champions League next season and they may need to sell in order to be able to afford the Jamaican.
During 2019/20, Bailey has caught the eye with a string of fine performances for Leverkusen.
He has registered seven goals in 22 games with his latest coming against Rangers in the 3-1 Europa League victory at Ibrox.
Bailey to Arsenal would be an interesting transfer, to say the least. He is still relatively raw but has pace in abundance, is direct and loves to weigh in with goals.
Mikel Arteta has placed his trust in lots of youngsters since he arrived at the football club and that makes Bailey an ideal signing.
Arsenal supporters certainly believe he’d do a job for the team.
Following the latest news that the Gunners might be interested, they have taken to Twitter to offer their thoughts.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Arsenal faithful regarding Leon Bailey.
