Liverpool have Bayer Leverkusen wing-back Jeremie Frimpong on their “radar” ahead of the summer transfer window, according to a fresh rumour.

The Reds will have a new manager in place by the end of the summer, with Jurgen Klopp departing after a legendary period at Anfield over the past eight-and-a-half years.

Whoever it is that does come in to succeed the German will want to sign their own players, with Sporting CP boss Ruben Amorim looking like the front-runner to come in.

While Xabi Alonso has confirmed that he is staying put at Leverkusen for at least another year, it looks as though Liverpool could be looking to sign one of his current stars.

That’s according to Football Insider, who claim that the Reds are interested in signing Frimpong in the summer window, being seen as a strong option to bolster their squad ahead of the start of next season:

“Liverpool have Bayer Leverkusen wing-back Jeremie Frimpong on their radar, sources have told Football Insider.

“Speaking on the latest edition of Football Insider’s Inside Track podcast, senior correspondent Pete O’Rourke explained that a potential switch to Anfield for Frimpong could push Trent Alexander-Arnold into midfield.”

Our thoughts on Liverpool signing Frimpong this summer…

Frimpong is enjoying a fantastic season for a high-flying Leverkusen side, scoring eight goals and registering seven assists in the Bundesliga, as well as netting twice in the Europa League and German Cup apiece.

The one thing working against Liverpool bringing in the 23-year-old this summer is how it could stunt the growth of Conor Bradley, as the report alludes to. The Northern Irishman has excelled in 2023/24 to date and looks a huge prospect for the future.

That being said, if the plan for the next manager is to push Trent Alexander-Arnold into midfield, the Reds would then have two great options in the right-back area, allowing the Liverpool vice-captain to stay put in the middle of the park for good.

Ultimately, if a move appeals to a player of Frimpong’s calibre, the Merseysiders should certainly look into the signing, given his current ability and long-term potential.
