And the player’s representatives will look to begin talks with potential suitors next week.

Bailey, 20, is currently under contract until 2022.

But Leverkusen would struggle to turn down a bid of £35m-£40m for one of their prized assets.

The Gunners would look for a cut-price offer after a busy summer of transfers already.

Meanwhile Chelsea could throw some money at the opportunity if they sell their £70m-rated Willian to an awaiting Barcelona.

Jamaican-born Bailey’s eligibility to represent England is still up in the air.

But Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate remains interested if the winger can legally prove his English roots.

The ace has represented the Reggae Boyz at U23 level but has yet to accept a call-up to their senior squad.
