Frimpong’s scintillating form increasing transfer interest, major boost for Celtic

Former Celtic fullback Jeremie Frimpong is a target for Bayern Munich as the flying Dutchman continues incredible form under Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen. The league leaders are ten points clear of the reigning German Champions but face an uphill battle in retaining their best players in the summer given their impressive displays.

With Barcelona, Real Madrid and a host of English Premier League clubs linked with Frimpong, it is no surprise that Munich are monitoring the 23-year-old.

The news is good for Celtic as they retain a sizeable sell-on fee that would entitle them to around 20% of the fee that he eventually goes for, believed to be around €40-45m, meaning that the club could net around €8m from the defender that left Paradise in 2021.

Frimpong joined Celtic in September 2019 from Manchester City. The youngster broke through under Neil Lennon as Celtic won a Treble in the 2019/20 season before leaving midway through the COVID season. In his time at the club, Frimpong made 51 appearances, scoring three goals and assisting on eight occasions. Performances caught the eye across Europe and the Bundesliga side swooped to sign Frimpong in a deal worth around £12m.

Now, as Bayer Leverkusen power towards a famous Bundesliga title, Frimpong is a key figure under Alonso. This season, in 30 appearances, Frimpong has scored ten goals and assisted on ten occasions, an impressive return and one that has the attacking wingback on the shopping list of some of Europe’s leading clubs.
