Liverpool are interested in sealing the signing of highly-rated Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Jeremie Frimpong, according to a fresh transfer update.
The Reds have the opportunity to bolster their squad in the January transfer window, with injuries starting to become problematic, having to make do without the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Dominik Szoboszlai currently.
An area that has been revamped by Jurgen Klopp in the past year is Liverpool’s midfield, with enormous changes made in the middle of the park.
It has played a big role in the Merseysiders topping the Premier League table, as well as still being in every cup competition, but that’s not to say that further additions may not arrive soon.
According to Football Insider, Liverpool are one of the clubs keeping an eye on the progress of Frimpong, although a January or summer move isn’t specified.
“Liverpool are among the sides monitoring the situation of Bayer Leverkusen wing-back Jeremie Frimpong, sources have told Football Insider. Football Insider revealed on Tuesday (9 January) that Aston Villa are keen on the 23-year-old and he could become a realistic target for the Midlands giants if they secure Champions League qualification.
“It is believed Frimpong is also wanted by Man United and Arsenal following his impressive performances for Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.”
Our thoughts on Liverpool’s interest in Frimpong…
Frimpong is a player who is already shining so much for a Leverkusen side sitting top of the Bundesliga, with former Liverpool hero Xabi Alonso in charge there. The Spaniard has even called him a “special player” in the past, which speaks volumes.
The 23-year-old has scored five goals and registered six assists in 16 Bundesliga appearances so far this season, generally taking up a midfield role but also capable of playing out wide.
Frimpong could make Liverpool’s midfield even more formidable moving forward, chipping in with end product and acting as a long-term signing with so much more to come, and he will hope to add to the one cap he has already won for the Netherlands.
It would arguably be a surprise if he arrived at Anfield this month, given the midfield options available, but a summer switch could make perfect sense.
