Spurs reportedly want £43m ace who's been compared to Ronaldinho, fans should be thrilled - TBR View
Spurs have reportedly joined Liverpool in the race to sign Jeremy Doku.
Doku’s club reportedly values the 19-year-old attacker at 50million euro, or £43million.
But Spurs could have fierce competition, given Liverpool’s apparent interest in Doku.
This is according to a report in Dutch outlet Voetbal 24 from three weeks ago.
Even though Harry Kane is staying at Spurs, the north Londoners are apparently looking to bolster their attacking ranks further.
And Tottenham fans should be excited about speculation linking them with Doku, as he’s a top talent.
Spurs target Doku – the story so far
Doku came through the ranks at Anderlecht and made his debut in November 2018 aged 16.
He clocked up 37 competitive senior appearances for the Belgian outfit, registering six goals and seven assists.
Doku then moved to Rennes in October last year for a reported £23.4million.
His move to the Ligue 1 club came amid reported interest from Liverpool.
Doku has made 41 appearances for the French outfit, registering two goals and four assists.
The 5ft 7in ace has also won 10 caps for Belgium, and featured at Euro 2020.
Doku’s style of play
Doku is an exciting and versatile right-footed attacker whose main position is on the right wing, but he can also play on the left flank.
While at Anderlecht, he also played in attacking midfield and up front.
According to Total Football Analysis, “Doku’s main strength is his dynamism in the final third with his direct style by running straight at defenders with pace while being able to cross accurately at top speed.
“He has excellent balance, coordination, and changes of pace which leads to him getting fouled often.”
Doku has earned comparisons with Sadio Mane, Raheem Sterling and even Ronaldinho.
