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.
Fabrizio Romano said €40m was the estimated fee that teams will be able to buy the Flying Dutchman for. Although, with 27 appearances comprising of 8 goals and 10 assists, his value will be rising.
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. Not a bad amount.
