Ex-Celtic star Jeremie Frimpong 'lined up by Premier League giants Manchester United' as shock January transfer target | The Sun
JEREMIE FRIMPONG has reportedly been lined up for a stunning move to the Premier League.
Manchester United have been rumoured to be keeping an eye on the former City defender.
Frimpong joined Celtic back in 2019 under the rule of former boss Neil Lennon.
The Dutch defender arrived at Parkhead with great promise after leaving the highly-rated Manchester City academy.
And the youngster won everything there was to win in Scotland, claiming the Premiership title, the Scottish Cup and the League Cup.
He even won the fans' young player of the year award in 2020 for his performances in the green and white.
He was then sold to Bayer Leverkusen for a cool £11.5 million in the summer of 2021 on a four year deal.
But now his form in Germany has seen him linked with a footballing giant.
Man U are now reportedly lining up a move for the Dutch defender, according to Sky Sports.
They reckon that Red Devils boss Erik Ten Hag has Frimpong 'on his radar' as they look to strengthen in the right-back slot.
