Arsenal linked with Leverkusen wing-back

Arsenal are one of the clubs interested in signing Bayern Leverkusen wing-back Jeremie Frimpong this summer.

The Dutchman has enjoyed a stellar season with the Bundesliga side, helping them win the league title for the first time in their history, and they are on course to add to other pieces of silverware to that.

Frimpong himself, has scored 14 goals in all competitions, a premium return for somebody who is nominally a defender.

He has a release clause in his contract of only ₤35 million, but there is a catch.

It must be triggered before the start of Euro 2024, where Frimpong can be expected to be an automatic starter for the Dutch national team.

Should no team choose to exercise the option in that time frame, Leverkusen, who do not want to him, can demand a much higher fee for the former Celtic and under-21 Manchester City player.
