Man Utd, Spurs sanction Europa League scouting trail for blistering winger

Manchester United and Tottenham are among four Premier League clubs who will send scouts to watch winger Leon Bailey on Thursday, according to a report.

The Daily Mail claims that Arsenal and Everton will also hope to have close eyes on the Bayer Leverkusen winger.

Bailey could start for the Bundesliga club in their Europa League tie with Slavia Prague. Leverkusen, who are already through to the knockout stages, can secure top spot with victory in Germany.

But for the Jamaica international, the game presents a chance to continue his electric start to the season.

Bailey has already scored five goals and assisted six others in 14 games in all competitions. Indeed, his five direct contributions in Europe have helped Leverkusen progress to the Europa League’s last 32.

The winger has also provided two goals and four assists in the German top flight, with his club second in the table.

However, Bailey will aim to prove his worth to more than just his teammates and fans on Thursday. Despite Covid-19 restrictions limiting access to the BayArena, scouts will gain access to watch the winger.

The Daily Mail adds that the four Premier League clubs in question are pondering a summer move for the player.



Indeed, after Leeds failed with a bid in the most recent transfer window, he retains interest among top clubs. That is also the case across Europe, with Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain also watching him closely.

As for his potential fee at the end of the season, Leverkusen could ask for more than the £36million they demanded from Leeds.

Indeed, the newspaper notes that the German side have a case for doing so already, given his start to the campaign.

Bailey has three years left on his contract but has made clear that he wants a move to the English top flight.

Report talks of Martial exit claim

Meanwhile, a report in Spain has claimed that Anthony Martial has offered himself up for a move away from United.

The Frenchman, who enjoyed impressive form last season, has struggled to maintain consistency this term.

As such, he reportedly fears for his place in his country’s Euro 2020 squad and believes that he would be better served by finding another club.
