Man Utd, Arsenal and Tottenham set to scout Leon Bailey as they weigh up transfer for Bayer Leverkusen star

BAYER LEVERKUSEN ace Leon Bailey will reportedly be scouted by four Premier League teams on Thursday night.

The winger has caught the eye of a number of Europe's big boys with a string of stellar displays for the Bundesliga oufit.

Arsenal, Tottenham, Everton and Manchester United are said to be four of the teams interested in signing the 23-year-old, who has played a key role in Leverkusen's impressive start to the season.

And according to the Daily Mail, the Premier League quartet will send representatives to watch the Jamaican in action in Leverkusen's Europa League clash with Slavia Prague.

They claim scouts from all four clubs will be in attendance at the BayArena to take notes on the £36million-rated man.

Bailey and his Leverkusen team-mates have been flying this season and currently sit second in the Bundesliga table, one point behind defending champions Bayern Munich.

The former Genk ace has played a big part in Leverkusen's success, scoring five goals and providing six assists in 14 appearances.

Bailey's form this season is in stark contrast to his run in the previous campaign, in which he scored seven goals and racked up three assists in 33 appearances.

Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz has been thoroughly impressed by Bailey's turnaround this season and reckons he's getting better with each passing game.

In October, he said: "Leon had it very hard, last year and early this season.

"But I see that he gets better with every game – physically, but also in terms of his football.

"When you see how much he runs, but also how much he sprints and his football playing quality, that's always going up.

"In the last game against Nice, the first goal he set-up for Nadiem Amiri was really great.

"And he played well today [vs. Augsburg] too. He improves every game."

Bailey is expected to start in Leverkusen's crunch clash with the Czech champions, which will determine who will qualify from Group C as winners.

Both teams have 12 points to their name, although Slavia currently top the group on goal difference.
