One key aspect that adds intrigue to the negotiations is Frimpong’s contractual situation. His contract with Bayer Leverkusen includes an exit clause that remains valid until 2028. Remarkably, this exit clause is set at a substantial £40 million, reflecting the high regard in which Frimpong is held by his current club.

However, for clubs interested in acquiring Frimpong’s services, time is of the essence. The window of opportunity afforded by the exit clause is limited, with its validity extending only until the commencement of the European Championships in June. Therefore, any potential suitors for the talented right-back must act swiftly to capitalize on this opportunity.
