Manchester United have been linked with a move for Jeremie Frimpong despite Erik ten Hag having Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back.
However, the 22-year-old’s statistics this season show he might be an improvement on that pair.
Frimpong joined Bayer Leverkusen from Celtic in 2021 and has made 80 appearances in all competitions, bagging nine goals and 18 assists.
The Netherlands U21 international has been a regular under Xabi Alonso and is on United’s radar due to his fine form in Germany.
Sport Bild (via SportWitness) say Frimpong is one of the ‘hottest stock’ for the summer as he’s been consistently fantastic at Leverkusen. United ‘want’ the right-back, but it remains to be seen what Ten Hag will do with his existing alternatives.
Dalot has made 32 appearances in all competitions, while Wan-Bissaka has made 21.
The former was a regular before the World Cup but since then Wan-Bissaka has staked a claim for himself under ten Hag, so both right-backs are valuable to the manager.
