Manchester United have sent their scouts to watch Jeremie Frimpong

Manchester United have ‘sent scouts to watch Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong’… with versatile Dutchman scoring five Bundesliga goals this season as ‘Erik ten Hag looks to recruit another full-back to replace Diogo Dalot’

  • Manchester United scouts have gone to watch Jeremie Frimpong in Germany
  • Frimpong has scored five league goals so far this season from the right flank
  • Primarily a right-back, Frimpong has a reputation for his dribbling down the wing
  • Current United right-back Diogo Dalot’s contract expires at the end of the year 

Manchester United have reportedly sent scouts to watch highly-rated Bayer Leverkusen defender Jeremie Frimpong.

The ex-Celtic man has impressed this term for the Bundesliga side in a variety of roles on the right flank and has earned a call-up to the preliminary Holland squad for the World Cup.

The signing of Frimpong would continue Erik ten Hag’s Dutch shopping spree as he looks to imprint his own style onto his United squad.

According to Fabrizio Romano and Florian Plettenberg, United’s interest in the right-back is legitimate as they seek reinforcements in the position.

Diogo Dalot’s contract expires at the end of the season – although the club have the option to trigger a further year, which looks likely given his form this season – and, according to Plettenberg, United want ‘a high quality right-back in [the] winter’.

Frimpong has been in superb form for Leverkusen this season and has already scored more goals this campaign than he had done in the whole of his professional career prior to the start of the season.

The 21-year-old is also able to play further forward and could help to provide his coach with much-needed flexibility in attack.

Frimpong’s contract expires in 2025 and a deal in an upcoming transfer window could prove to be a win-win for all parties. 

With Aaron Wan-Bissaka seemingly a non-option, United are in desperate need of a right-back who can replace, or deputise for, Dalot.

At 21, Frimpong would help represent United’s new approach in the window of looking to buy younger players – adding to the likes of Antony and Malacia. 

Ten Hag will be hoping to secure the services of Frimpong as he continues his rebuild of Manchester United.
