There are few things more exciting in football than your team bagging that sought after wonderkid, buying that teenaged talent that everybody is tipping for greatness. The Reds have been pursuing a policy of hoovering up these prodigies in recent seasons, bringing in Billy Koumetio, Harvey Elliott and Sepp van den Berg to name just a few. We could be set for another wonderkid arrival in the near future with Liverpool reportedly having a ‘renewed interest’ in Jeremy Doku.
Liverpool and Jeremy Doku
Liverpool have previously tried to sign Jeremy Doku.
Goal reported back in July on how the Reds had tried to bring him to the club a couple of years ago. The Belgian was allegedly spoken to by Steven Gerrard and Jürgen Klopp as the club sought to persuade him to move to Anfield.
In the end the talented winger ended up staying in Belgium, moving to Anderlecht.
Liverpool ‘renewed interest’ in Doku
According to Dutch outlet Het Nieuwsblad, Liverpool have rekindled their interest in Jeremy Doku.
The report claims that the Reds would want to sign him this summer and immediately loan him back to the Belgian side.
It is said that Anderlecht are reluctant to sell but their financial situation could force them to consider an offer in the ‘tens of millions’.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Jeremy Doku would certainly be a statement of intent given his growing reputation.
The teenager was in the news again recently after he scored a wonder goal for Belgium.
Speaking to Reuters after the game, Kevin de Bruyne referred to the youngster as a ‘diamond in the rough’.
There is sure to be competition for his signature in the coming years, he has already scored one and assisted one in the opening four games of the season in Belgium.
Given the Reds’ reluctance in the transfer market this year this could be a move for next summer, or very late in the window.
