Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a defensive boost in the form of Edmond Tapsoba from Bayer Leverkusen.
United head coach Erik ten Hag, who desired defensive reinforcements during the summer transfer window, may revisit this pursuit next year. The Dutchman had hoped to bolster the backline with a new right-back and central defender.
However, the Red Devils’ inability to offload certain players and financial constraints prevented these acquisitions in the recent window.
While Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire were expected to depart, those plans fell through. This situation could lead to Manchester United reevaluating their options for next summer’s transfer window.
Edmond Tapsoba, who attracted interest from Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the year, remains on the radar. The Burkina Faso international aligns with Ten Hag’s style, making him a potential replacement for Victor Lindelof or Raphael Varane.
Additionally, Manchester United are considering Jeremie Frimpong as a right-back option. This potential double move hinges on the club’s budget, as both players come with substantial price tags.
