Manchester City agree €65m fee to sign Rennes winger Jeremy Doku

Manchester City are reportedly very close to completing the signing of Rennes winger Jeremy Doku. 

The Athletic reports the Premier League giants have agreed a transfer fee worth around €65 million with the Red and Blacks. 

There was interest from other clubs, but Doku only wanted to join Man City. 

He has already agreed personal terms with City and is now set to pen a five-year contract at the Etihad Stadium.

The 21-year-old will reportedly fly to Manchester on Tuesday with his medical tests scheduled for the following day. 

Despite suffering a series of injuries last season, Doku played an important role in helping Rennes secure a top-four finish in Ligue 1

He made 29 appearances across all competitions, bagging six goals and two assists. 

The Belgium international scored in their opening league fixture against Metz, but he was on the bench in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Lens. 

Rennes fans are unlikely to see him when their team hosts Le Havre this weekend, which can be watched via Ligue 1 streams, as he is now on the verge of joining Man City.

The Citizens want to sign Doku as a replacement for Riyad Mahrez, who joined Al-Ahli earlier in the summer transfer window

The 21-year-old arrived at Roazhon Park in 2020 in a €26m move from Belgian outfit Anderlecht. 

He has made 91 appearances in all competitions, netting 12 goals.

Jeremy has mainly played on the right wing, but he has also played on the other flank. He is highly rated for his dribbling skills and ability to hold onto the ball.
