In a recent report, Defensa Central mentioned that Real Madrid are eyeing a move for Bayern 04 Leverkusen right-back Jeremie Frimpong. It is understood that Los Blancos are weighing up a move to secure the services of the Dutch full-back.
Frimpong’s Impressive Form In German Football This Season
Frimpong has enjoyed a decent run of form in Germany during this campaign after producing a series of eye-catching performances on the right side of Leverkusen’s defence. The 21-year-old has registered two goals and eight assists in 30 matches for the German club this season in multiple competitions.
The Amsterdam-born talent has been an influential presence at both ends of the field as he has completed 1.3 tackles, 0.7 interceptions, 1.4 clearances, 1.0 key passes and 2.0 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga. He has even taken care of the ball when distributing possession out from the back based on his pass success rate of 81.9% in the German top tier (stats via whoscored).
What Will Frimpong Bring To Real Madrid?
Frimpong can use his pace and agility to make a few decent runs with the ball out on the wide areas. He has proven himself to be a decent defender at the back and can keep the ball moving quite well in the opponent’s half. The Dutch talent has added a handful of goals and assists to his name this season which makes him a good choice for Los Blancos to pursue in the summer.
At 21, Frimpong has a very bright future in European football. Therefore, Carlo Ancelotti should strongly consider sealing a move for the Dutch prospect in the summer.
Moreover, Frimpong could offer some healthy competition for Dani Carvajal at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the coming seasons. We can expect the Leverkusen whizkid to bring a lot of pace and dynamism to Ancelotti’s first team.
Frimpong is versatile enough to do a good job in both full-back positions and has the potential to become a top player in his position someday. Thus, the Madrid giants should launch a move to bring him to the Spanish capital when the transfer window reopens at the end of this season.
