Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano relays Jeremie Frimpong interest

Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano relays Jeremie Frimpong interest - Manchester United News

Manchester United have been scouting Bayer Leverkusen right-back Jeremie Frimpong but will face competition for his signature, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Frimpong profiled

Frimpong made the move to Leverkusen from Celtic last year and has gone from strength to strength in Germany.

The 21-year-old has made 62 appearances for his current employers and appears to be at the peak of his powers, with the Dutchman currently posting a career-high £22.5m Transfermarkt valuation.

Frimpong is under contract until 2025 and has been mainly playing as a right-midfielder this season, and it looks as if he is catching the eye of United officials.

The Latest: Romano’s post

Romano took to Twitter on Monday morning to provide the latest regarding Frimpong, following a recent update from Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg revealing United’s interest.

The Italian journalist said that ‘there are lot of clubs interested’ after he scored again at the weekend, with the ex-Man City ace still having over two years left on his current deal. According to Plettenberg, one of those interested clubs is indeed United.

The Verdict: Wan-Bissaka replacement?

Erik ten Hag has Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka as right-back options at Old Trafford, with the latter of the two playing just four minutes of action all season.

Reports in the summer suggested that Wan-Bissaka would be allowed to leave the club, but as we know, a move away failed to materialise. He seems surplus to requirements under Ten Hag, so Frimpong could potentially be viewed as a replacement for the right-back.

Frimpong has contributed to seven goals in 15 appearances this season and can play in a back four or further forward as a wing-back – something that could interest United – making this one to watch heading into 2023.
