- Manchester United scouts have gone to watch Jeremie Frimpong in Germany
- Frimpong has scored five league goals so far this season from the right flank

Manchester United have sent scouts to watch Jeremie Frimpong whilst in action for Bayer Leverkusen.
Frimpong, formerly of Celtic, has impressed this term for the Bundesliga side in a variety of roles on the right flank and has managed to get a call-up to the preliminary Holland World Cup squad.
The signing of Frimpong would continue Erik ten Hag’s Dutch shopping spree as he looks to embed his own style onto his United squad.

Dalot’s contract expires at the end of the season and, according to Plettenberg, United want ‘a high quality right-back in [the] winter’.
Frimpong has been on great form for Leverkusen this season and has already scored more goals this campaign than he had done in the whole of his professional career prior to the start of the season.
With Tyrell Malacia already an option at left-back, it seems like Ten Hag is looking to add youthful exuberance to his United flanks – with both Dutch defenders providing extreme energy from full-back.
The 21-year-old is also able to play further forward and could help to provide his coach with much-needed flexibility in attack.

Frimpong’s contract expires in 2025 and a deal in an upcoming transfer window could prove to be a win-win for all parties.
With Aaron Wan-Bissaka seemingly a non-option, United are in desperate need of a right-back who can replace, or deputise for, Dalot.
At 21, Frimpong would help represent United’s new approach in the window of looking to buy younger players – adding to the likes of Antony and Malacia.
Ten Hag will be hoping to secure the services of Frimpong as he continues his rebuild of Manchester United.
