With some of the top teams in Europe rumoured to be interested in the right-back, former Celtic star Jeremie Frimpong appears destined to be at the centre of a transfer war this summer.
The 22-year-old just had a great Bundesliga season with Bayer Leverkusen, and has held his place in the Netherlands national team.
And now, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Frimpong could be “one to watch” this summer as far as a transfer goes after the player’s agents “meeting” with the management of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Manchester United.
Romano tweeted, “Jeremie Frimpong remains one to watch this summer as his agent met with Barcelona, Bayern and Man United almost two months ago.
“Dutch RB completed the season with 10 assists and 9 goals. Bayer Leverkusen hope to keep him but they’re aware of big clubs interest.”
Leverkusen will be extremely confident of doubling or possibly quadrupling, the £11.5M cost paid to acquire Frimpong’s services from the Chelsea previous season, which he concluded with 10 assists and nine goals.
This is outstanding news for Celtic as they will be due anything up to 30% of any future fee that Frimpong manages to garner due to a release clause inserted into the transfer deal with Leverkusen.
