With just days remaining of the transfer window, it seems Nuno Espirito Santo is keen to bring a certain type of player to Tottenham.

There has been plenty of talk about Adama Traore reuniting with Nuno in N17, a player who causes chaos with his utterly direct dribbling.

Interestingly, Jeunes Footeux believe Tottenham are also eyeing Rennes winger Jeremy Doku, who is a scarily similar player to the Wolves forward.

The 19-year-old – who shone for Belgium at EURO 2020 – is valued at €50m (£42.9m) by the Ligue 1 outfit.

Speaking of EURO 2020, it was in the quarter-final defeat to Italy where Doku caught Gary Lineker’s eye.

What does Gary Lineker think of Jeremy Doku?

The BBC Match of the Day host specifically commented on the teenager’s mesmeric dribbling ability, claiming that it made him dizzy.

Ever since Opta began collecting data for the World Cup and European Championships, no player has completed more dribbles than his eight against Roberto Mancini’s side.

Watch out Tottenham, Liverpool also want Jeremy Doku

If Tottenham are to sign Doku, they must fend off a serious challenger in Liverpool.

Not only are the Reds a more attractive club to play for right now, they have also done some hefty groundwork on the deal.

Doku and his father have already travelled to Merseyside in the past where they were given a tour by Liverpool, as revealed by Het Nieuwsblad.

Interestingly, Doku senior said Jürgen Klopp told him he sees the next Sadio Mane in his son – exciting stuff.

Keep an eye on this saga – whoever lands Doku could be getting a star of the future.
