“One Of Ten Hag’s Main Targets…” Journalist Claims United Are Plotting Summer Move For 25M Rated Dutchman

Manchester United are likely to make a move for Bayer Leverkusen right-back Jeremie Frimpong at the end of the season, according to Bild reporter Christian Falk.

The German journalist claims that the Netherlands international was a target for the Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag during the January transfer window and it’s likely to be a deal that will be revisited this summer:

“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. So, you see now that Ten Hag is performing well with his team and has good arguments for Frimpong and for United in terms of fulfilling his wish. I think he’s one of Ten Hag’s main targets for the summer.”

Leverkusen were reportedly demanding around £25m for Frimpong in January so securing the defender’s signature is unlikely to be that difficult.

Chelsea had also been linked with the former Manchester City and Celtic player but they snapped up Lyon’s Malo Gusto instead and they are not expected to be in the market for another fullback.

It means that United will have an excellent chance of signing Frimpong if and when they decide they do decide to make a formal approach for the Dutchman in the coming months.
