MANCHESTER UNITED have expressed an interest in signing Jeremie Frimpong from Bayer Leverkusen, according to reports.
The Red Devils are in the market for a new defender as Erik ten Hag looks to continue his rebuild.
And 22-year-old Frimpong has emerged as a top transfer target.
According to football journalist Patrick Berger, the Red Devils are keen on the prospect of signing the Dutchman.
And Bayer Leverkusen could give him the green light to leave in the summer as they have already got his replacement.
The Bundesliga side completed the signing of Brazilian full-back Arthur from America Mineiro on Monday.
Should Frimpong make the move to Old Trafford, he would be competing with Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka for a place in Ten Hag’s starting line-up.
The Red Devils are expected to welcome several players in the summer transfer window.
Ten Hag is understood to be prioritising a new striker with Tottenham star Harry Kane at the top of his transfer wishlist.
Victor Osimhen and Goncalo Ramos have also emerged as potential targets, but both players are expected to cost over £100million.
In order to facilitate the overhaul of new players, the Red Devils will allow several players to leave at the end of the season.
The likes of Harry Maguire, Brandon Williams, Alex Telles, Anthony Martial and Eric Bailly are all expected to be sold.
Jadon Sancho, Dean Henderson and Scott McTominay could also depart.
