Chelsea have scouted Frimpong in recent years and are still doing so now under new owners Todd Boehly and Clearlake.
Journalist Simon Phillips, Chelsea have been scouting Bayer Leverkusen defender Jeremie Frimpong.
The Dutch youngster has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, and Phillips admits the Blues have been watching him for a few seasons now.
One month back in October, FootballTransfers claimed that Chelsea were interested in Frimpong.
The west London club could face competition for his signature, with the same outlet reporting that rivals Manchester United are also taking interest in the player.
Chelsea manager Graham Potter currently has Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta as the right-back options.
Reece James has been out with a knee injury, while the skipper of Chelsea is not getting any younger. It is not a surprise to hear that the West London club are interested in a player like Frimpong.
Phillips has told GIVEMESPORT that Chelsea have scouted Frimpong in recent years and are still doing so now under new owners Todd Boehly and Clearlake.
Speaking to GMS, the journalist said: “I think it’s a position that Chelsea will address in the summer rather than January, but they are starting to look at targets. Jeremie Frimpong is on there.
“Chelsea have scouted him a few times in recent seasons and they’ve stepped that up again now under the new ownership.”
The 21-year-old has netted five goals in 15 league appearances for Leverkusen this season, which is pretty impressive for a player of his position.
If Chelsea do want to sign a new right-back in January or next summer, which looks necessary, then Frimpong is a player who is definitely worth considering.
