Fabrizio Romano’s exciting Jeremie Frimpong update amid great form

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has provided an exciting update on Jeremie Frimpong as the flying Dutchman enjoys a terrific season for Bayer Leverkusen. The former Celtic full-back moved to Germany in January 2021 in a deal worth £13m; however, Celtic retained a sell on-fee of the profit.

Now, Romano is updating supporters to say that Frimpong has a release clause of £40m that will come into force in the summer – likely attracting interest from England. Under Xabi Alonso, Frimpong has become a key figure – scoring 7 goals and assisting 9 times this season.

Celtic signed Frimpong on deadline day in 2019 from Manchester City and he quickly forced himself into Neil Lennon’s plans with a blistering debut against Partick Thistle. In his relatively short time at the club, Frimpong made 51 appearances scoring three goals and assisting eight times. His impressive displays saw Leverkusen pay a decent sum for him but such was Celtic’s role in discovering and nurturing the player that the club retained a sell on fee.

If €40m is the fee, you would imagine Celtic would get between 15-20% of the profit, which could work out £4.2m-£5.6m. Celtic, meanwhile, need to conduct some fairly extensive transfer business of their own as Brendan Rodgers looks to bring quality into his team after a poor run of results.
