Sky Blues open talks with former player

Manchester City have opened talks with Bayer Leverkusen star Jeremie Frimpong as they prepare for summer transfer window business.

The former Man City defender has been in fine form for Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen side and helped the Bundesliga outfit to win the league this season.

According to HITC, the Premier League leaders Man City are hopeful of beating Manchester United, Arsenal and Aston Villa in the race to sign the right-sided full-back.

Frimpong left the Premier League club back in 2019 for first team opportunities elsewhere and his development into one of the best players in the world in his position has caught the attention of Pep Guardiola.

The Dutch international has helped his team win the league title unbeaten. Bayer Leverkusen are yet to lose a match this season not just in the league but also in the cup and Europa League.

As per the report, the former Man City player has a release clause of £34 million, which would not be a problem for the Premier League outfit.
