Manchester United are said to have held talks with the representatives for Bayer Leverkusen right back Jeremie Frimpong amidst plans for a fire sale of defenders in the upcoming transfer window, according to reports.
Erik ten Hag has been long searching for a right back as he prepares to sell at least three full-backs over the summer, and after a strong season in the Bundesliga, the Dutch defender has climbed to the top of the rankings.
As per the Manchester Evening News, United were prepared to accept offers for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has struggled to find consistent form at Old Trafford, last summer, but no concrete interest materialised.
A move for Frimpong would see United try to tempt the 22-year-old back to where he grew up, as the player was part of the City academy set-up until a move to Celtic in 2019.
He joined Leverkusen two years ago, and his form for the Bundesliga outfit saw him handed a ticket to Qatar by former national team coach Louis van Gaal.
