Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Belgian winger Jeremy Doku.
According to journalist Rudy Galetti, the 19-year-old is one of Liverpool’s main targets this summer, and Rennes are holding out for a fee of around €40 million.

Doku has shown flashes of his quality with Belgium during the European Championships and could develop into a top-class player in the future.
Stylistically he could be the ideal long-term replacement for Sadio Mane.
Dokuwas heavily linked with a move to Liverpool a few years ago, with the player even visiting Melwood back in 2018.
However, the youngster chose to continue his development with Anderlecht but may be more willing to join the Premier League club this time around.
The youngster needs to join a club where he can play regular first-team football, and it is unclear whether Liverpool can give him the necessary assurances.
Doku is an exceptional talent but needs to work on his end product before being a regular starter for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Mane, (Mohamed) Salah and (Diogo) Jota are all established players and would likely start ahead of him.
The reported €40m asking price is steep, but the player has the potential to justify the price tag in the long run.
