Bailly targeted by top clubs

Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly is rumoured to be on the wish list of two London clubs. According to Daily Star, the centre back is on the radar of both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs.He is part of three players believed to have fallen out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho. That has been seen given the limited playing time under his belt this season. He was blamed and subsequently dropped after the embarrassing 3-2 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion.Last weekend, Bailly was the first casualty as Mourinho substituted him inside 20 minutes against Newcastle. The Portuguese’s open criticism of his players and desire to bring in more centre backs adds fire to the fuel.It is believed that both Unai Emery and Mauricio Pochettino would be keen to bolster their defence by bringing Bailly on board. The current fiasco at United could spell doom for Mourinho in terms of a mass exodus of his star players as early as January 2019.
