Real Madrid and Chelsea in High-Stakes battle for Frimpong

Real Madrid

The race for Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong has escalated into a tug-of-war between Chelsea and Real Madrid. The 23-year-old full-back, known for his attacking ability from wing-back position, has emerged as prime transfer target for both clubs.

Frimpong’s rise to prominence began following his switch from Celtic to Bayer Leverkusen in January 2021. His adaptation to the Bundesliga has been swift, showcasing his attacking flair while playing as a dynamic wing-back. This season, Frimpong has been nothing short of outstanding, contributing to an impressive tally of 17 goals in 22 appearances. His seven goals coupled with ten assists underscore his impact and burgeoning potential.

Amid his stellar performances, a host of Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United, have expressed interest. However, it appears Chelsea is leading the charge in pursuit of the Dutch talent. Despite possessing viable right-back options, concerns loom over Reece James’ fitness inconsistencies and Malo Gusto’s struggle to secure regular playing time, prompting Chelsea’s keen interest in securing Frimpong’s services.

Real Madrid looking out for Dani Carvajal’s potential replacement

Real Madrid has had a watchful eye on Frimpong for quite some time. With Dani Carvajal aging and showing signs of performance decline, Real Madrid are seeking a long-term successor for right-back position. Frimpong, with his youthful energy and attacking prowess, has emerged as an enticing prospect for Real Madrid’s future plans.

Nevertheless, the current scenario leans in Chelsea’s favor. Reports suggest the London club’s readiness to trigger Frimpong’s €40 million release clause. This proactive approach has added intensity to the transfer saga, potentially paving the way for Frimpong to opt for Stamford Bridge over the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid faces a critical juncture, needing to act swiftly to secure Frimpong’s signature or risk losing him to Chelsea’s determined pursuit. The battle for the dynamic full-back’s services has intensified, as both clubs vie to bolster their defensive arsenals with this promising talent.
