Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Everton are amongst the sides planning to send scouts to watch Leon Bailey on Thursday, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
The Bayer Leverkusen attacker is one of the most exciting talents in the Bundesliga. He has scored five goals and provided five assists across the top flight and Europa League this season.
All of his goals came in a remarkable run in November. But it appears that a number of sides are hoping to see him rediscover that form when Leverkusen face Slavia Prague this week.
The Daily Mail reports that Spurs and the Gunners will have representatives at the game. Meanwhile, Everton, Manchester United, Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain will also have eyes on the fixture.
The report notes that Peter Bosz’s side valued Bailey at £36 million in the summer. And it is suggested that his valuation could now increase further.
The Mail also claims that the Premier League quartet are weighing up a move for next summer.
TBR View: Bailey making big move looks inevitable
It looks to be a matter of time until Bailey secures a big-money move. The 23-year-old has long been considered a fantastic prospect. And he is now realising that potential.
He offers plenty of versatility. He has predominantly played on the right of a front three this season. But he is also capable of playing in a slightly deeper role, or moving into a central position.
And even if his asking price increases in the near future, there arguably looks to be the potential for a move for Bailey to prove a masterstroke.
