Manchester City are on the hunt for a new winger following the departure of Riyad Mahrez.
The Blues have had a quiet summer for incomings, and relatively quiet on links incoming. However, it was earlier reported that the European Champions are interested in Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise.
Now transfer expert Fabrizio Romano states that Manchester City could move for Rennes winger Jeremy Doku.

The Belgian international joined the Ligue 1 club in 2020 following a youth career at Anderlecht. In 90 appearances for Rennes he has scored 11 and assisted 10.
The 21-year-old is a raw talent and would have to develop further under Pep Guardiola.
While both Doku and Olise are young talents, only one has Premier League experience. Given that the Premier League is notoriously challenging for young footballers, joining the Premier League champions would be huge steps in a budding career.
As Cole Palmer is linked with a move away from the Blues, Oscar Bobb and James McAtee have been given an opportunity to impress Guardiola.
While both had impressive pre-season appearances, one could argue that they are not yet reliable options to call upon.
