Manchester United have reportedly held “very positive” talks regarding a summer transfer swoop for Bayer Leverkusen right-back Jeremie Frimpong.
  • Red Devils eager to bolster their defence
  • Dutch star firmly in their sights
  • Summer deal being lined up

WHAT HAPPENED? The Red Devils already have Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot on their books at Old Trafford, but Erik ten Hag feels that is an area of his squad that can be improved. With that in mind, efforts are being made to line up a top target.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Sky Deutschland reports that discussions have taken place between United and Frimpong’s representatives, with all parties eager to see a deal put in place. There is still a long way to go before a move can be pushed through, but the 22-year-old Dutch defender is open to the idea of leaving Leverkusen.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Netherlands U21 international Frimpong is tied to a contract in Germany through to 2025, but the former Manchester City academy star – who spent two years with Scottish giants Celtic before moving to the Bundesliga – could soon be heading back to Britain.
