Arsenal rival Man Utd for Bailey as agent worries over fee

Arsenal are rivaling Manchester United for RacingGenk whizkid Leon Bailey.

The exciting Jamaican prospect has been linked with some of Europe's biggest clubs.

HLN says Arsenal scouts were in attendance on Sunday as Genk drew 2-2 with Standard Liege.

Along with prime target Guillaume Hubert, the Standard goalkeeper, Gunners reps also had the chance to run the rule over Bailey.

His agent, Ronnie Rosenthal, admits the likes of United could be frightened off by Genk's asking price.

"Manchester United is one of the top clubs who are very interested. But 20 million, that is rather a price for players who have already proven themselves in the Champions League or in a big competition," said Rosenthal.
