Liverpool, still seeking two more midfielders and a center back after the acquisition of Alexis Mac Allister, has been active in the transfer market. Although things are not going well, they have made contact with the target’s agents and are negotiating for a transfer.
The departure of Caoimhín Kelleher leaves open the possibility of moving to secure a reserve goalkeeper, but they rule out an interest in acquiring a new forward.
According to GFFN, Liverpool has revisited its past interest in Rennes’s Jeremy Doku, and is considering a move for the player, who has frequently been linked with a move to Liverpool around EURO 2020, and has revived interest after two years.
His dribbling ability to leave opponents behind with his menacing athleticism, spring and agility is truly impressive. In addition to his vertical speed, his deft steps are reminiscent of Newcastle’s Frenchman Alain Saint-Maximin.
Although he can break down the penalty area even when playing alone, Liverpool’s current squad is covered by Colombia’s Luis Diaz. Liverpool also has enough right-handed wingers, and if they want to target a frontrunner, it would be a left-handed winger who can cut in from the right side, a potential successor to Mohamed Salah.
In addition, the number of injuries is a concern. He was injury-free in his first season with Rennes, but since his second year, he has been out more often than not. The frequency of injuries, similar to Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who failed to make an impact at Anfield, is a disadvantage.
His age, still 21, is attractive, and if he learns to adjust to the conditions, he may be able to avoid being out with injury.
However, the top priority this summer is the midfield and the strengthening of the center backs. As for the forwards, we don’t see the need for bolstering since, besides Diaz, we also have Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo, and Harvey Elliott can also play on the wing.
It seems unlikely that the Belgian winger will head to Anfield this summer, but he could land in England at some point in his career.
Will he ever get to play in a Liverpool uniform…?
