The Premier League player has expressed his strong desire to join Arsenal instead of Chelsea…



A top-tier player from the Premier League affirms his strong desire to join Arsenal rather than Chelsea.


Leon Bailey expresses interest in potentially transferring from Aston Villa to either Arsenal or Chelsea, two prominent clubs in the Premier League.


Bailey acknowledges that despite his current contentment at Villa, he would be tempted by the opportunity to join one of these ‘massive clubs’.


In his most successful season yet, the 26-year-old winger has showcased his talent by scoring 12 goals and contributing 11 assists in 40 matches across various competitions.


Unai Emery’s team has made an unexpected push for a top-four spot and advanced to the later rounds of the Europa Conference League, thanks to the impressive performance of his squad. Aston Villa is set to face French side Lille in the quarter-finals of the competition.


Bailey, who has settled well in Birmingham, is fully focused on delivering for Aston Villa. However, he acknowledges that the opportunity to join one of the “big six” clubs would be too enticing to turn down.


During an interview on the Let’s Be Honest podcast, the Jamaican international mentioned the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea as examples of the renowned English clubs that fall under the category of the “big six.”


Playing in the Premier League has always been a lifelong aspiration of mine, and I am currently living that dream. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of such a prestigious team? Especially considering that I come from Jamaica, where the significance of this achievement cannot be overstated. It means a great deal to me personally as well.


One of my main goals while playing abroad has been to bring more attention to my country and its talented young individuals. For Jamaicans, it is often challenging to even imagine making it to Europe, so I feel a responsibility to use my platform to shed light on our nation and its potential.


As for the question about my future plans, I cannot provide a definitive answer at this moment. I am fully focused on my current team, Aston Villa, and thoroughly enjoying my football. This season has been one of the best in my career, and I am committed to giving my all to the club.


In football, anything can happen, but I feel content and satisfied with my current situation. My main priority is to concentrate on one task at a time.


Chelsea, despite being part of the traditional ‘Big Six’, has recently fallen down the pecking order and currently sits in 11th place in the Premier League.
