Liverpool “Keen” on Agreeing “Bargain” Deal to Sign 22-G/A star But PL Rivals May May Thwart Move

Liverpool and Manchester United are reportedly engaged in a battle over acquiring Bayer Leverkusen star Jeremie Frimpong this summer, according to Football Insider.

Frimpong, aged 23, has had a remarkable season under the guidance of Xavi Alonso, scoring 12 goals and providing 10 assists in 35 appearances across all competitions.

Bayer Leverkusen have been on a title charge this season and remain contenders in both the Europa League and DFB Pokal. With the opportunity to secure a treble, Frimpong has played a pivotal role in the German club’s successful campaign.

Frimpong’s captivating performances for Leverkusen this season have garnered interest from several prominent English clubs, including Manchester United and Liverpool.

As per Football Insider’s report, Liverpool are keen on acquiring Frimpong and may pursue a formal bid before the upcoming season.

The report suggests that Frimpongs current contract includes a £35m release clause, and Liverpool think securing the Leverkusen star for this price would be a bargain.

Football Insider has reported that Manchester United are considering making a move for Frimpong, potentially rivaling Liverpool in securing his services.

Frimpong has excelled in the wing-back position at Leverkusen, but Manchester United’s preference for a back-four system under Erik ten Hag might not align with his style.

Meanwhile, as Jurgen Klopp prepares to step down as Liverpool manager, the club are searching for his successor.

While Alonso was initially targeted, Liverpool are now eyeing Ruben Amorim, who favours a system that suits Frimpong’s playing style.

Amorim’s utilisation of wing-backs in a back three suggests that Frimpong could thrive under his management at Liverpool.

Therefore, if Liverpool appoint Amorim, Frimpong may be better suited to joining them rather than Manchester United.
