The season is approaching to its end, and clubs in the Premier League are ready to splash the cash this summer. Premier League clubs were mostly inactive in the winter transfer window, but this summer could see a lot of transfers from many teams from England. Manchester United and Manchester City are two clubs ready to invest in their squads this summer, and they are both targeting a player who has been world-class this season. Both teams are ready to improve their squad by bringing in young players to fulfill positions that either lack quality or are aging. The target they are going for is a player involved in a team who has not lost a single game this season at the club level.

Manchester United and Manchester City are targeting a player from Bayer Leverkusen. Most clubs would look to sign players from that squad since the team could be close to achieving a historic unbeaten season. Players like Florian Wirtz and Grimaldo could be targets for big clubs, but the player the Manchester clubs are interested in is their wingback Frimpong.

The Sun Football reports that Man United and Man City are interested in Bayer Leverkusen's Jeremie Frimpong, who has a $43 million release clause this summer. Man City sees him as a potential long-term successor to Kyle Walker. Man City may have the edge over Man United since Frimpong spent over a decade at City's academy. Another positive for City is the fact he would be classed as home-grown and academy-trained is another financial plus to Man City.

Frimpong can play as a right-back, but he is utilized perfectly as a right-wing-back. Frimpong is very attacking, and his stats back it up. This Bundesliga season with Bayer Leverkusen, he scored eight goals and has provided seven assists. Frimpong has matched his exact stats from last season at the time of writing.
