The right-back, Jeremie Frimpong from Bayer Leverkusen is coveted by Barcelona and Bayern Munich
Due to his strong achievements this year, the Dutchman is catching the eye of several European clubs and may move during the summer transfer window. According to reports, Manchester United is interested in Frimpong but must compete with two formidable European foes. Both Barca and Bayerm are interested in Frimpong as they strive to expand their right-back options.
Jules Kounde and Ronald Araujo, both centre backs for the Catalan giants, have played right back this year. Sergi Roberto has also been used by the midfielder. Sergino Dest was loaned out to AC Milan, where he has underwhelmed. Barcelona will want to offload the American player and sign a new player.
However, given their financial predicament, they will find it difficult to raise the money needed to sign Frimpong. Additionally interested in Frimpong is Bayern. They enjoy signing opposition players and are familiar with him from the Bundesliga. As they want to send Joao Cancelo back to Manchester City at the conclusion of the season, the Bavarians require a second right-back.
Bayern will choose a player who is familiar with the league. Frimpong is one of the most exciting young players at offensive full-back. They form a terrifying duo on the right flank with Moussa Diaby.
In 26 games this season for Leverkusen, he has eight goals and six assists. The Manchester City academy graduate is a reliable if unspectacular defender, despite his defensive vulnerabilities. Leverkusen’s asking price for Frimpong is unknown, although it is most certainly going to be more over €35 million.
