Sources: Man United make move for Jeremie Frimpong as new price tag revealed

Man United are plotting a move for Bayer Leverkusen right-back Jeremie Frimpong ahead of the summer window, sources have told Football Insider.

The 22-year-old has earned rave reviews from Old Trafford scouts, who have been tracking his progress closely this season.

Frimpong is valued by Leverkusen at between £40-50million but sources have told Football Insider that there is a belief a deal can be done at £30-35million.

The Amsterdam-born defender is happy in Germany but it is believed that he would be keen to join an English giant playing in the Champions League.

Erik ten Hag wants to add a new right-back option to his squad this summer after assessing his squad in the first season of his Old Trafford reign.

As revealed by Football Insider on Monday (20 February), Man United are confident of securing right-back Diogo Dalot to a new deal.

This site has also revealed (22 February) that Aaron Wan-Bissaka is giving “serious thought” to departing the club this summer.

Frimpong, who started his career in the youth system at Man City, has boasted a productive record since joining Leverkusen.

He has notched five goals and seven assists for Xabi Alonso’s side across 29 appearances as a regular starter this season.

The 22-year-old’s first senior appearance came at Celtic – where he played 51 games and won a domestic treble in the 2019-20 season.

Frimpong is under contract at Leverkusen until June 2025 and earns a reported wage of around £35,000-a-week.

Man United can win the first trophy of the Ten Hag era by beating Newcastle in the League Cup final on Sunday (26 February).

The Red Devils are third in the Premier League but are still in the fight for the Premier League title.
