Man United reportedly have an edge in pursuing full-back target Jeremie Frimpong. The 22-year-old defender could be open to a move to Man United, with the presence of Erik ten Hag considered vital in this case. Frimpong is having a fine season with Bayer Leverkusen, scoring five goals this campaign. His attacking performances landed him a place in the Netherlands World Cup squad, although he did not play a single minute as Dumfries was the first-choice starter. Jeremie is expected to have a bright future, and certainly, there are chances he could pursue a career in the PL. While there is tremendous interest in the right-back following his displays this campaign, Man United may find themselves in pole position for the right-back. The report insists Man United may enter the market for a new right back to replace Aaron Wan Bissaka. While Erik ten Hag recently outlined the problem with the right-back, he also encouraged the Englishman. However, if Wan Bissaka is sold in January, Man United could look at Frimpong to replace him. While Leverkusen remains uninterested in a sale during the January window, they might ease their stance if the £25m asking price is met. Moreover, the report insists the presence of Erik ten Hag could prove vital in the chase as the Dutchman may prefer to play under his compatriot. There are also doubts whether the Leverkusen star would prefer to remain second fiddle to Dalot, although there is every chance of him claiming his place in the starting lineup in future.
