Liverpool should pay £25 million to sign teenage sensation Jeremy Doku from Anderlecht, report Het Belang Van Limburg.
Doku famously turned down a move to Anfield in 2018, despite Jurgen Klopp turning on the charm offensive and pledging to make the Antwerp-born teenager the new Sadio Mane on Merseyside. However, then Doku was a little-known 15-year-old.
Currently, he is one of the first names on Anderlecht’s team sheet and a starter for the Belgian national team, with his increasingly influential performances encouraging Liverpool to express their interest again (Nieuwsblad).
While the prospect of paying £25 million for an 18-year-old will have the cynics shaking their head and proclaiming that the ‘game has gone’, Liverpool would be paying for potential.
This is a youngster who has been tipped to become ‘better’ than Eden Hazard if he makes his right foot as lethal as his left.
