Manchester United have been linked with Jeremie Frimpong for quite some time and the latest reports are highly positive for the Red Devils.
Back in November last year, Sky Germany revealed that the Bayer Leverkusen right back is expected to complete a move to Old Trafford in summer.
As per the latest update provided by Head of Football for Bild, Christian Falk, Frimpong is close to agreeing a move to Manchester United.
The renowned German journalist told Caught Offside:
“Jeremie Frimpong is getting closer and closer to a United move. Frimpong was also a topic in Winter – United really wanted him then,”.
“You know, he’s a Dutch player and his connection to Erik ten Hag is very close. There should have been talks.”
The 22-year-old Netherlands starlet’s current deal with Bayer Leverkusen will expire in 2025 and as per a recent story published by Football Insider, the Bundesliga side value him at around £50million.
United do have quality options in the right back position such as Dalot and Wan-Bissaka but the duo have not been productive in the attacking third.
Frimpong can effectively play as a right midfielder if needed and this season, he has so far netted 5 goals and provided 7 assists in all competitions for the German side.
