According to Football transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, the Ghana FA is still pushing hard to convince the Dutch-born defender to switch nationality and play at the 2022 World Cup.

Frimpong will strengthen Ghana’s defense and attack should he join the squad for the Mundial
The former Celtic defender is with the Netherlands U-21 team and was involved in the friendly against Belgium on Saturday.
The Ghana FA is said to be using the same tactics used in luring English-born Tariq Lamptey in their pursuit for Jeremie Frimpong.
Frimpong signed for Leverkusen in January 2021 from Scottish giants Celtic for a fee around £11.5million.
The 21-year-old has scored two goals in seven appearances for Bayer Leverkusen this season
New recruits Inaki William and Tariq Lamptey made their debut for Ghana against Brazil in the international friendly on Friday after switching nationality in June.
