Jeremie Frimpong eyes Leverkusen exit amid European giants' interest

Jeremie Frimpong is reportedly on the verge of leaving Bayer Leverkusen, with top clubs like Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Arsenal vying for his signature.

The Dutch full-back has been pivotal to Xabi Alonso's title-winning Bayer Leverkusen squad this season, amassing an impressive 14 goals and 12 assists across all competitions at the BayArena.

Frimpong's stellar performances have not only caught the attention of English and Spanish giants but also Bundesliga rivals. Manchester City, aiming for their fourth consecutive Premier League title, and Bayern Munich are reportedly keen on the highly-rated 23-year-old defender.

German publication BILD suggests that Frimpong is inclined towards leaving Leverkusen, seeking a fresh challenge after a historic season. 

His current contract includes a £34 million release clause, which must be activated before the start of the European Championships this summer. If not, Leverkusen retain control over his future.

Coach Alonso, who chose to stay at Leverkusen despite interest from Bayern Munich and Liverpool, will undoubtedly aim to keep Frimpong. 

Under Alonso's guidance, Leverkusen have not only clinched the Bundesliga title but also reached the finals of both the Europa League and the German Cup. Remarkably, they remain unbeaten in all competitions with only three matches left, eyeing a potential treble.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Tah, another key defender for Leverkusen, is also contemplating his future. The 28-year-old's contract expires in 2025, and the club might consider selling him this summer to avoid losing him for free next year. Tah, Leverkusen's longest-serving player, has attracted interest from Bayern Munich and several top English clubs.

This season, Tah has been a cornerstone of Alonso's defense, making 45 appearances and contributing six goals. His potential departure, alongside Frimpong's, could significantly impact Leverkusen's defensive stability.

As the transfer window approaches, the futures of Frimpong and Tah will be closely monitored by top clubs across Europe. Their possible exits highlight the competitive nature of the transfer market, where elite talents are in constant demand.

Leverkusen's ability to navigate these potential departures will be crucial in maintaining their newfound success under Alonso's management.
