Man City in talks with Rennes to sign Belgian winger Jeremy Doku

Manchester City are in talks with Rennes over a deal for winger Jeremy Doku.

After losing Riyad Mahrez to Saudi Arabian side Al Ahli for £30 million, City have targeted Rennes forward, Jeremy Doku as a possible replacement for the Algerian captain who spent 5 years at the club.

The French club value Doku at €55million and have had a bid from West Ham rejected earlier this month.

According to SkySports News, the Hammers are unlikely to re-enter the race following a major interest from City.

The 21-year-old has already scored in his first two games for Rennes this season, having scored six goals in Ligue 1 last season.

Doku could become City’s third major summer signing after the arrivals of Josko Gvardiol and Mateo Kovacic, with the Croatian pair costing a combined £107.6m.

Talks between Manchester City and Doku are ongoing and City will be hoping to reach an agreement with the French club later this week.
