Leon Bailey has put Arsenal and Chelsea on red alert as he looks to push through a move to the Prem this summer.
The Bayer Leverkusen star is keen to complete the switch away from the Bundesliga before the transfer window shuts in England on August 9.
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.

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.
