Hansi Flick tells Barcelona that Jeremie Frimpong is his ‘priority’ signing


New Barcelona manager Hansi Flick has reportedly told the club that Jeremie Frimpong is the one player he wants above all others this summer.

Barcelona have previously been linked with a host of defensive midfielders and left-wingers, but may need a right- back – particularly if Joao Cancelo heads back to Manchester City.

According to RAC1, Flick has decided that the Bayer Leverkusen right-back is his “priority signing” and has told Barcelona to try and make it happen.

Frimpong has just enjoyed a stellar season helping Leverkusen win the double and finished the campaign with 14 goals and seven assists in all competitions.

The Dutchman’s performances have seen him linked with a host of top clubs already, and it seems Barca can be added to that list.

Frimpong is also thought to have a release clause in his contract set at 40 million euros, an amount that may just tempt clubs into making offers for the Dutchman.

Yet bids are likely to have to wait until after Euro 2024. Frimpong is currently with the Netherlands squad who return to action on Saturday against France.
