Jeremie Frimpong of Bayer Leverkusen has been contacted by Premier League powerhouse Manchester United in preparation for a possible summer transfer.
According to reports from Sky Sports in Germany, Erik ten Hag is a big fan of the Dutch player and is willing to leave the Bundesliga club.
The Leverkusen team led by Xabi Alonso recently defeated Bayern Munich at the BayArena, and the 22-year-old has been a key component of that team.
When the current season is over, United will reportedly prioritize adding reinforcements at right-back because neither Diogo Dalot nor Aaron Wan-Bissaka can satisfy the demands of the former Ajax manager.
Frimpong hasn’t received a senior cap for the Netherlands, but in 26 league games, he has eight goals and six assists, demonstrating his value in Germany’s top division.
Ten Hag, who likes to play attractive football on the front foot, will be drawn to his attacking flair.
But the Germans won’t be obligated to enter into a fast agreement with the Red Devils because their contract doesn’t expire until 2025.
With only eight games remaining in the Bundesliga, Frimpong will initially concentrate on assisting his team qualify for Europe.
