Who is Jeremy Doku?

19-year-old winger Jeremy Doku is a star for club and country.

The teenager has just finished his debut season in the French top flight having joined Rennes from Anderlecht last summer.

He has spent the past few weeks lighting up Euro 2020, stunning fans around the world with his explosive pace and tight dribbling ability.

Able to play on either wing he is well respected by his national teammates, Kevin De Bruyne referred to him as a ‘diamond in the rough’.

As per The Guardian, the Reds invited the teenager to Melwood when he was just 16-years-old but he opted to stay at Anderlecht for the time being.

He has since impressed at Rennes and the Reds are thought to have reignited interest.

Rudy Galetti has reported that Liverpool have made requests for Jeremy Doku but Rennes are working hard to keep him.

The French side would allegedly want around £34m for his signature.

What RTK has to say

This is a story which just won’t die. The Reds are linked with this lad constantly.

We don’t think that Galetti has come up with anything new here.

However, given the financial woes of the French Ligue 1 at the moment it wouldn’t surprise us if the Reds did try to bag Doku for a bargain fee this summer.
