Jeremie Frimpong’s Potential Travel Destinations – Ranked

Bayer Leverkusen has upset the applecart in a few ways this season. As is always the case with these stories, the stars of the story are associated with leaving.

The latest name in the transfer gossip column is full-back Jeremie Frimpong, whose contract includes a relatively cheap release clause of €40 million.

A report from PICTURE claims that four clubs in particular are eyeing a move for the Dutch international. But where would he best end up?

Let’s evaluate Frimpong’s options.

Even if Manchester United’s season hadn’t imploded spectacularly, they would probably still be bottom of this list.

The Red Devils squad is a mix of visions that needs a thorough overhaul. In terms of age profile, Frimpong would fit the bill, but that’s the type of signing United have failed to nail down properly in the past.

Frimpong is more of a specialist full-back, not a traditional full-back. It would take a strong coach to sell him the vision of a move without the Red Devils changing their formation – which, we should add, is not out of the question given the uncertainty surrounding Erik ten Hag’s future.

But United shouldn’t even be an option for Frimpong at the moment. It’s not worth binging on Monday Night Football every week just because you’re in the wrong environment.

If Arsenal follow through on their interest in Frimpong, it will likely be because Mikel Arteta has another tactical move up his sleeve.

The right-back role firmly belongs to Ben White, and as long as he doesn’t quietly fall into a black hole, he won’t lose it.

The inclusion of Frimpong would suggest that Arteta is planning on changing his setup, or that he is just desperate to bring in a profile that he doesn’t already have. Whatever the case, it’s unlikely the Dutchman would be in the starting lineup if he could get minutes elsewhere.

Let’s play devil’s advocate for a moment – ​​why does Frimpong have to leave Leverkusen?

Xabi Alonso has confirmed he is staying next season and other star players could follow suit. If Leverkusen actually finishes this season with an unbeaten treble (!!!!!!), then they should fancy their chances of making a push into the Champions League and successfully defending their Bundesliga title.

Frimpong is still only 23. He doesn’t need to rush into making a bad move.

Recent history has taught us that if you are a top player and Manchester City want to buy you, it is unlikely that you will regret moving there.

Frimpong spent nine years in the City academy before moving to Celtic and during his time away from the north west of England he developed into one of the best in his role.

Again, the key point is that City don’t really play with a specialist full-back, but Guardiola is more likely to drastically change his system than Arteta. If the call comes from the Etihad Stadium, Frimpong should think about answering.

Real Madrid are once again the force to be reckoned with in the transfer market.

Their squad already includes Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga. They are expected to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer and Alphonso Davies could follow. Endrick will be on the first plane to Spain at the age of 18.

They are building a squad for the present and the future at the Santiago Bernabeu, which may not only include Frimpong, but also one of the men who knows him best, Alonso.
