Stade Rennais Mercato: Author of a remarkable season internationally, the SRFC could have one of his jewels stolen by the Juventus.
SRFC Mercato: Jérémy Doku targeted by Juventus
Summer promises to be hot at Stade Rennais. Still in the race for qualification in the Champions League, the Rouge et Noir should operate a substantial transfer window in the coming months, in terms of departures and arrivals. Very active already during the last summer transfer window, Florian Maurice will have to make room in the workforce this year, in particular by offering exit doors to several players. If some have seen themselves pushed towards the exit as Jonas Martinwhich has not been extended by its management, others, on the other hand, could leave Brittany in the event of a very good offer.
This is particularly the case for the Belgian international, Jeremy Doku. Deemed untouchable at the start of the season despite his disappointing first year at the SRFC, the 19-year-old striker gradually lost his starting spot in Bruno Genesio’s squad, due to numerous injuries hampering his progress. If Doku’s talent is undeniable, his difficulty in winning after two seasons at Stade Rennais could push the club to foresee a departure in exchange for a big check.
And precisely, on this file, the courtiers are not lacking. After Newcastle this winter, the Red Devil would have entered the shortlist of the Juventus. According to journalist Mirko Di Natale, the Bianconeri would have checked the name of the Rennes striker for a transfer this summer, especially in the event of the departure of Moise Kean.
Towards a Kean-Doku exchange between the SRFC and Juve?
The interest of the Turinese for Jérémy Doku could benefit the SRFC, which, for its part, was beginning to prospect in Europe to strengthen its offensive axis. Ironically, the Bretons would have targeted the Italian Moise Keanwhich is no longer in the odor of sanctity at Juventus.
The former PSG player, who left a good mark in our championship, would greatly please Florian Maurice who could be tempted by an exchange with the Old Lady. For the time being, no deal of this kind has been mentioned but it is a safe bet that the leaders of Stade Rennais are considering this possibility, especially if their Belgian jewel does not quickly regain its level.
