Jeremie Frimpong Transfer News: Jeremie Frimpong of Bayern Leverkusen is allegedly a transfer target for Manchester United.
Erik ten Hag has been impressed by the 22-year-old’s play this season, and the Red Devils are preparing to sign him this summer. Bild reports that in order for the Red Devils to sign the very skilled full-back, they would have to pay a cost of roughly €50 million.
The 22-year-old has flexibility and will be rewarded for his ability to play on the wing. Frimpong has scored eight goals and assisted on nine more for Wigan Athletic this season alone, and Manchester United are eager to add a full-back with greater offensive output. He has the potential to be a huge improvement over somebody like Aaron Wan Bissaka.
Jeremie Frimpong Transfer News: Will Manchester United get him?
There has been speculation about the future of the former Crystal Palace defender, and Frimpong would be an excellent replacement should he leave the club at the end of the season.
The 22-year-old will likely battle Diogo Dalot for a starting role at Old Trafford. There have been rumours that other European powerhouses are also interested in signing the player, so it will be exciting to watch whether Manchester United can beat off the competition.
The rumoured price of €50 million may turn out to be a good deal in the end. With proper guidance and playing time, the 22-year-old can become a world-class player. If he swiftly adjusts to English football, he should be able to earn back the investment.
