Reported Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United target Leon Bailey has revealed Bayer Leverkusen is the ‘perfect’ club for him and he is in no rush to leave for a bigger team.

The 20-year-old has been in brilliant form this season, with his 11 goals and five assists attracting the attention of some of Europe’s biggest names.

The Jamaica-born forward, who was recently linked with a switch to represent England by bogus reports, has helped Leverkusen up to fourth place in the Bundesliga table and also the semi-finals of the German Cup.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly three of the clubs interested and the Premier League giants have all reportedly sent scouts to watch Bailey in action.

And while the starlet has admitted his ambition to play at the top level, he has no plans to leave Leverkusen just yet.

“Leverkusen is perfect for me,” the in-demand youngster told Bild.

“I want to develop and then I can take the next step.

“When I move to a big club, the people there will want to know me.

“I want to make a name for myself at the highest level.”
