It has been reported that former Celtic fullback Jeremie Frimpong could potentially be making the switch to Barcelona this summer.

The defender departed the Hoops at the beginning of 2021 as Celtic’s ten in a row dreams continued to shatter.

Celtic made a very tidy sum of money with his transfer after the youngster had been picked up from Manchester City for a fee around £300,000.

He flourished during his first season under Neil Lennon and was an important player to the team, being integral to Celtic winning a history making Quadruple Treble.

Very quickly, the former City academy star became a bit of a fans favourite due to his infectious personality and his ability to get forward from defence and make things happen.

Having had an impressive spell in Glasgow, he very quickly started to attract admirers from around Europe with his eventual destination being Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.

The Dutch U21 internationalist departed Celtic in January 2021 for a fee believed to be rising to £11.5 million.

He would go on make his return to Celtic Park last season when his Leverkusen side took on Ange Postecoglou’s team in the Europa League group stages.

The 21-year old has been continuing to develop during his time in Germany and appears to now be attracting interest from Barcelona with a report from journalist Gerard Romero stating that he along with four other defenders were being considered for a move to Barcelona.

With a potential move on the horizon for the Dutchman it would mean that Celtic can land further cash as the Daily Record has reported that the Hoops included a “cast-iron-sell-on-fee” in his contract.

This could potentially give Ange Postecoglou an extra few quid to spend in the transfer market with there just being over two weeks left before the window closes.
