Southampton FC

The 20-year-old is one of his side’s most prized assets, with Transfermarkt valuing him at 18 million euros and his current deal not expiring until 2025.

He has banged in one goal in 13 matches for Rennes this term on all fronts.

The 20-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Belgium. The Rennes winger has also represented the Belgium at various youth levels before going on to secure 12 senior caps for his country thus far.

His performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Premier League’s clubs.

Jeremy Doku is widely regarded as a key transfer target for Southampton this winter. The Belgium international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of winger Nathan Jones wants to sign in the winter transfer window.

There is no doubt that Doku will take Southampton’s attack to a different level.

World Football Rumours

According to the report, “Southampton launch Jeremy Doku transfer bid as talks begin with Rennes over signing 20-year-old Belgian winger. The highly-rated winger is currently at Rennes after a £23m move in 2020. While injuries have hampered his progress in France, Doku has demonstrated flashes of quality and goal-threat. Foot Mercato report that the Saints are bidding to bring him to St Mary’s to give their struggling side a boost. The Premier League side are believed to be enquiring about his availability. Southampton will be hoping he can bring some additional sharpness to their goal-shy forward line.”

Rennes feel under no pressure to sell and will “demand a significant fee” before letting him go.

It would take a huge offer from Southampton to prise the 20-year-old winger from Rennes.

Good signing for Southampton?

If Southampton and Jones are seriously considering a winger, Doku could also prove to be a smart option.

It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.

All in all, Doku will be an ideal choice for Nathan Jones as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his attackers.

It will be interesting to see if Southampton make their move for the 20-year-old in the coming days.
