The midfielder had a loan stint at Wolves from Arsenal in 2012.
Frimpong, who came through Arsenal's youth academy, has battled serious knee injuries over the years and has been a free agent since his spell with Swedish side Ermis Aradippou ended in 2017.
While on the Gunners' books, the Ghana international had a stint on loan at Molineux in 2012, and even though he only made five appearances for Wanderers, he has a lot of love for the club, who likewise remain very fond of him.
