Liverpool have decided to enter into a ‘bidding war’ for the signing of Bayer Leverkusen right-back Jeremie Frimpong as Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his defence, according to Spanish outlet Depor.

The online news portal claims that Frimpong is also being targeted by Real Madrid and Chelsea.

It is believed that the 22-year-old is seen as Dani Carvajal’s successor with Lucas Vázquez set to leave Bernabéu at the end of his contract.

“The desire for Frimpong is evident in the White House, but Chelsea and Liverpool have stood in the way. Both Premier League clubs, known for his financial power, have included the young full-back in their priority list for the 2024/2025 season,” a quote from Depor reads.

Liverpool will have to battle Madrid and Chelsea in bid to sign the Netherlands international. Trent Alexander-Arnold is the Reds’ recognised right-back at the moment following the transfer of Calvin Ramsay.

Injuries restricted Ramsay to two first-team appearances for the Reds last term, having moved to Anfield from Scottish Premiership outfit Aberdeen last summer.

Academy graduate Conor Bradley, who was seen as an understudy to Alexander-Arnold, is out injured and will need games to get back to full fitness therefore the signing of a right-back could help Klopp’s side.

Frimpong has established himself as one of the best right-backs in the Bundesliga since moving to Xabi Alonso’s side from Celtic in 2021. He has racked up 111 appearances, scored 16 goals, and provided 27 assists across all competitions.

The 22-year-old, who is a key player for Alonso, helped the club to the semi-finals of last season’s UEFA Europa League but lost 1-0 on aggregate to AS Roma.

This season, he has racked up 16 appearances, scored five goals, and registered seven assists in all competitions.
