Jeremie Frimpong, Man Utd, Arsenal

Jeremie Frimpong previously agreed to a move to Bayern Munich, according to a report.

The Bayer Leverkusen star is one of Europe's most sought-after players in his position after establishing himself as arguably the continent's most exciting right-back in recent seasons.

Under head coach Xabi Alonso, Frimpong has taken his game to the next level. This term, the Dutchman has notched a ridiculous 11 goals and 11 assists in 33 games across all competitions despite, nominally, being a defender.

This form has not only seen him return to the Dutch national team for this international break but it has also, naturally, attracted the attention of Europe's elite. FootballTransfers exclusively revealed in the winter that Arsenal are admirers of the 23-year-old, while Man Utd have been keeping tabs on him for at least a year.

Frimpong will be available for €40 million in the summer and the expectation is that he will leave Leverkusen. His destination, however, is not yet known and it's conceivable that he won't end up in the Premier League.

Bayern keen again

That is because, according to BILD's Christian Falk, Bayern are once again eyeing the Dutchman. While speaking to CaughtOffside, the journalist insinuated that the Bavarians may have an ace up their sleeve as they previously had an agreement to sign him in 2022.

"The Munich team is specifically interested in Jeremie Frimpong from Bayer Leverkusen. Erik ten Hag also wants to bring his compatriot to Manchester United. The right-back has a release clause of €40m. I heard that Frimpong could imagine a move to Munich."

"Because: There was already a secret meeting with the player in a Cologne hotel in the past. At that time, Frimpong would have agreed to a change. However, Bayern opted for Noussair Mazraoui at the time because the player from Ajax Amsterdam was available for free."
