Liverpool is reportedly interested in signing Rennes winger Jeremy Doku during this summer’s transfer window. The Reds have already signed midfielder Alexis Mac Allister and have been linked with several other midfielders, but they are now reportedly targeting the Belgian international.
There has been no fee or agreement discussed between the clubs, but given Doku’s contract in France runs until 2025, the price tag could be significant. Rennes signed the 21-year-old from Anderlecht in 2020 for £21 million, and he made 35 appearances, scored seven goals, and contributed two assists for the French side last season.
Doku has been capped by Belgium 14 times, scoring two goals, and he was part of the national team squads for both Euro 2020 and last winter’s World Cup in Qatar. Last week, he came off the bench as Belgium remained unbeaten in their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign with a 3-0 win over Estonia.
Liverpool is keen to bolster their midfield options following the departure of Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and James Milner at the end of the season. However, Doku, known for his impressive dribbling skills, would also add another option in attack in the wide areas alongside Mohammed Salah and Luis Diaz.
While there has been no official confirmation from either club, Liverpool’s strong interest in Doku suggests that they could be willing to pay a significant fee to secure his signature. If the deal goes through, it would be a major coup for the Reds, who are looking to challenge for the Premier League title and compete for the Champions League in the upcoming season.
