According to The Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are one of a number of clubs who will send their scouts to Germany to watch Leon Bailey in action this evening when Bayer Leverkusen take on Slavia Prague in their final Europa League group match.

Bailey has started the season on fire for Leverkusen, having assumed more responsibility after Kai Havertz departed to join Chelsea in the previous transfer window.

The Jamaican international has notched up five goals and six assists so far and his form is one of the main reasons Peter Bosz’s side currently sit second in the Bundesliga table and have already sealed their place in the Europa League knockout stages with a game to spare.

The report claims that Leverkusan rejected an offer from Leeds United for the winger in the summer since they were not willing to budge on their £36m valuation.

It is suggested that the 23-year-old’s fine performances at the start of this campaign might have added a few more million to his price tag.

Tottenham are by no means the only club showing interest in Bailey, with The Daily Mail reporting that scouts from Everton, Manchester United and Arsenal are also expected to be at the BayArena to watch the winger.

German publication Sport1 claimed in August that Spurs were one of the teams keeping an eye on the Jamaican international alongside fellow Premier League side Everton.
