Manchester City has agreed to terms with Stade Rennais for the gifted winger Jeremy Doku.The announcement follows weeks of rigorous talks, with the overall value of the transaction anticipated to be approximately 60 million euros.
The Belgian-medical Ghanian’s tests will take place late on Tuesday, and if successful, would clear the door for a long-term agreement with Manchester City.
Doku’s projected move to Etihad Stadium is a significant step forward in the 21-year-old footballer’s career. The elements of the extension deal have been agreed upon, indicating the club’s firm conviction in Doku’s ability to have a long-term effect in the Premier League.
The club monitored the player’s progress meticulously over a long period of time, eventually identifying him as the ideal long-term successor to Riyad Mahrez. The latter’s move to the Saudi Pro League created a void that Doku should seamlessly fill with his exceptional flair, speed and skill.
Doku’s outstanding performance in the French League has piqued the interest of various teams, notably West Ham United, who had their bid rejected before.
