Frimpong to Man Utd this summer?
Football Transfer Centre

Manchester United could be inching closer to signing Bayer Leverkusen defender Jeremie Frimpong, according to Christian Falk.

The Dutch ace has been constantly linked with United over the past few months and they could make a serious move this summer.

Speaking to Caught Offside, Falk said: “Jeremie Frimpong is getting closer and closer to a United move. Frimpong was also a topic in Winter – United really wanted him then.”

The right-back has had an outstanding season with Leverkusen. He has six goals and eight assists from 31 appearances in all competitions.

His attacking and defensive attributes make him an ideal fit for manager Erik ten Hag but United may want to offload someone first.

The club currently have Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka as their right-back options and one of them could leave for Frimpong’s arrival.

Leverkusen valued him at around €25 million earlier this season, but they could easily demand closer to €40 million during the next transfer window.
