Bayer Leverkusen Holds on to Jeremie Frimpong Amid Premier League Interest
After the team’s best-ever start to a season, Xabi Alonso’s team leads Bayern Munich by four points at the top of the Bundesliga.
Due to the team’s performance, speculation on the fates of several important players—including Florian Wirtz, Exequiel Palacios, and Frimpong—has increased.
Leverkusen, on the other hand, is determined to withstand interest in their players by denying anyone permission to depart during the winter transfer window.
Leverkusen’s position on Frimpong, according to Fabrizio Romano, is extremely clear: they don’t plan to sell the full-back or any other player in January.
According to the source, Frimpong is wanted by the best clubs in Europe, but the Dutchman’s only realistic departure window is in the summer.
Even yet, there’s still a potential Frimpong leaves during the summer because, according to the article, a €40 million (£34.5 million) release clause will kick in in June.
However, since the buyout clause is inactive during the winter window, Frimpong is probably going to spend the remainder of the season at the BayArena.
This season, the Dutch right wing-back has been essential to Alonso’s team, particularly in attack.
Following a season in which he helped Leverkusen score 19 goals across all competitions, Frimpong has elevated his game in the red and black of Bayer.
Frimpong has already tallied seven goals and nine assists in the first half of the season, and given his current form, it seems inevitable that the 23-year-old will eclipse his stats from the previous year.
Since Carlo Ancelotti extended his contract with Los Blancos, it currently seems unlikely that Alonso will join Real Madrid; nonetheless, the Premier League’s wealth may persuade Frimpong to give way.
Next Saturday, when Leverkusen visits Augsburg to conclude the Bundesliga’s winter break, Frimpong should be back in action.
