The favored choice to replace the vacuum left by Jeremie Frimpong’s injury at Bayer Leverkusen is Timothy Fosu Mensah.
Last week, the Ghanaian defender, who was born in the Netherlands, was declared out for the rest of the season after suffering a catastrophic injury. He is anticipated to be out for several months.
The 21-year-old defender will be unable to play until the conclusion of the current season due to a syndesmotic ligament injury.
Frimpong, a former Celtic player, was injured in Leverkusen’s 1-0 loss to FC Cologne last weekend.
After only 13 minutes, he was replaced in the game by fellow Ghanaian Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
Fosu Mensah, who played for Manchester United before joining Leverkusen, is anticipated to feature until the end of the season due to the absence of his compatriot.
Fosu Mensah, who has struggled for playing time since joining Leverkusen, will benefit greatly from Frimpong’s setback.
Meanwhile, the Amsterdam-born defender will have to wait to make his Dutch national team debut owing to injury.
He was called up to the Dutch national squad for the first time this month for the friendly against Denmark and Germany.
