So, what has been reported about Arsenal and Manchester United target Jeremie Frimpong? Let’s take a look.
Jeremie Frimpong prefers Arsenal to Manchester United
Well, according to Football Transfers, Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in signing Jeremie Frimpong from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2023.
The report has claimed that United manager Erik ten Hag personally wants the former Celtic star at Old Trafford.
However, the 22-year-old, who can also operate as a right wing-back, would prefer a move to Arsenal, who could be able to sign him in the summer of 2023 if they trigger his €40 million (£34.28 million) release clause.
According to Football Transfers, the stability offered by Arsenal would help them win” the race for the Netherlands international.
There has been speculation that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta thinks that Frimpong could play in midfield.
There have also been suggestions that the former Celtic star is willing to leave Bayer at the end of the season.
Arsenal better option than Frimpong for Manchester United
In my view, Arsenal are a better option than Manchester United for Jeremie Frimpong.
United have been a ‘project club’ for years now. They have a recent history of sacking managers as well.
Arsenal are now regularly challenging for the Premier League title. The Gunners could even win it this season.
The Gunners have a very young and dynamic team, and I believe that Frimpong would fit in well at the North London club.
Frimpong has scored four goals and given five assists in 13 Bundesliga matches this season.
The former Celtic star scored eight goals and provided seven assists in 32 Bundesliga starts last season.
