Liverpool make ‘request’ for exciting Euro 2020 star this summer – report

Posted by

Liverpool have reportedly made an approach for Belgium and Rennes starlet Jeremy Doku.

The 19-year-old has been turning heads for a short while now, but performances for the Red Devils at Euro 2020 have really caught the eye.

Rudy Galetti credits Doku with attracting the interest of Premier League juggernauts Liverpool, who the Italian journalist claims have already made a ‘request’ for the Rennes winger.

Admittedly, the reporter isn’t the most reputable source around – but the previously stated demand of €40 million by the Ligue 1 side does seem somewhat accurate.

We at Empire of the Kop aren’t aware of any interest from Liverpool in Doku, but the teenager absolutely fits the profile of a potential Jurgen Klopp target.

It remains to be seen if the Reds will move for a new attacker in the summer transfer market, but the ever-reliable Fabrizio Romano claims Jurgen Klopp and co. want to be active – it just depends on sales.

Signing Doku would be an exciting coup by Liverpool, but with Galetti being the only notable source claiming interest, we’d suggest taking this rumour with a tablespoon of salt for now.
