Arne Slot wants Liverpool to sign 20 years old Dutch right back Jeremie Frimpong from Leverkusen.

The Reds finished third in the previous season under the final spell of Jurgen Klopp. After Klopp, Arne Slot has been given charge to manage this strong Liverpool side. Slot wants to build a side that is capable of both playing his tactics and challenging for the league title. Even though, on paper, Frimpong is a right back, he has been used as a right midfielder and even a right winger by Xabi Alonso at Bayer Leverkusen which shows that he is a versatile player. This can be one of the ways Arne Slot could replace Mo Salah in the squad.

Arne Slot interested in Jeremie Frimpong

According to SportBild, Liverpool are very much interested in signing the Leverkusen youngster Jeremie Frimpong.

The 23 years old Dutch player has had an incredible season with Bayer Leverkusen. He played a huge role in helping Leverkusen win their first ever Bundesliga trophy. He was active both in attack and defence. In a total of 47 games this season, he has 26 goal contributions which are great numbers for a defender.

Frimpong is said to be one of the fastest if not fastest players in the world at the moment. His release clause is just $43 million which might attract a number of big clubs.

Slot is very keen on signing him. He sees him as a best possible addition that can improve the squad both in attack and defense. They might start official talks soon with Leverkusen board to trigger his release clause.

Frimpong wanted by many big clubs

Liverpool would face some serious competition if they want to sign Jeremie Frimpong. Big clubs like Bayern Munich and Manchester United are also keen on signing the Dutchman.

The Dutchman has been a part of Manchester City’s youth squad for 9 years and played for Celtic before joining Bayer Leverkusen. The City graduate could be tempted to make a return to Manchester City, however, for now Liverpool are the only English club who are actually in the race to sign him

Bayern Munich are also interested in signing him but it seems that they are very ‘hesitant’ to continue talks and issue an official offer. But as it stands, Liverpool and Bayern Munich are the only clubs who are seriously thinking of signing Jeremie Frimpong. It is basically a two-horse race between them.

How good is Frimpong actually?

Jeremie Frimpong has had an incredible season with Bayer Leverkusen in 2023-24. He helped Leverkusen win their first ever Bundesliga title. He has also won the DFB Pokal after defeating 1. FCK 1-0. Frimpong also strived under Alonso stats-wise. In 47 games, he has scored 14 goals and assisted 12 goals. These are some incredible numbers for a defender. He has speed, agility, technique, skills, passing, dribbling and of course defensive skills. However, there are still rooms for improvement when it comes to his aerial duels.

Due to his incredible performance, he has been called up the Netherlands national squad and he will appear in his first ever Euro campaign this summer. Huge pressure on him and every big club is ready to keep an eye on him.
