Jeremie Frimpong asked about his future amid concrete Man Utd interest

Bayer Leverkusen defender Jeremie Frimpong has said that he has yet to decide on his future amid the increasing transfer interest from Manchester United.

The Red Devils are likely to bolster the right-back department this summer and they have already held ‘positive’ talks with Frimpong’s representative over a transfer.

A formal bid could be made in the coming weeks but Frimpong continues to remain coy over his future.

Speaking to Sport 1 (via Fussball Transfers), he said: “I don’t know when I will decide on my future. I’m just concentrating on Leverkusen and the upcoming games.”

Frimpong would suit Erik ten Hag’s playing style

Diogo Dalot was Ten Hag’s preferred right-back before the World Cup break but Aaron Wan-Bissaka has received more minutes since the turn of the year.

The Dutchman recently said that Dalot offers more in an attacking point of view while Wan-Bissaka has fared better with his defensive contributions for United.

In our view, Frimpong would suit the manager with his brilliant all-round attributes.

The 22-year-old has been in stellar form with eight goals and nine assists in 38 games. He has also won an impressive 1.7 tackles and 6.7 duels per appearance.

It has been reported that Ten Hag admires him and we believe United will push ahead with a formal bid to sign him. It could take €50 million to prise him away.

If Frimpong arrives at United, Wan-Bissaka looks the likely candidate to head for the exit door, considering the Red Devils are in advanced contract talks with Dalot
