Unai Emery should do all he can to land Leon Bailey

Unai Emery should do all he can to land Leon Bailey

Arsenal’s transfer business has been superb this summer and the Gunners could still be interested in bringing in one or two extra players to the squad. 

While Arsenal have strengthened in midfield, in goal and at the back, the Gunners could still do with a winger. While Unai Emery has Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick-Aubemayang up front, the Spanish boss could still do with the electric winger to complement the two stars.

According to The Sun, Bayer Leverkusen star, Leon Bailey is interested in moving to the Premier League this summer. The lightning-quick winger is keen to move to England before the transfer window closes and is a target for both Chelsea and Arsenal.

The Breakdown

The 20-year-old had a superb season last year scoring nine goals and six assists in 30 appearances. Due to his superb performances in the Bundesliga, the winger has attracted interest from the some of the best clubs in the world.

Valued at £40.5 million by Transfermarkt, Bailey would be an instant starter for the Gunners. While Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are both good players, neither has the ability to carry the team up the field nor beat players one on one.

With Willian now likely to stay at Chelsea, Arsenal could have a free run at the youngster. While a £40m bid may be above Arsenal’s budget, Bailey could be a star for the club and arguably make the Gunners one of the best teams in the league.

Would you take Leon Bailey at Arsenal, Gunners fans?
