Martin Blackburn of the Sun reports that Rennes have set a price tag of £47 million for the Belgian international. With the price tag being set as Blackburn reports, it would appear a bid from City is on the horizon.
Having identified Doku as a potential replacement due to Riyad Mahrez departing, it does seem that the move may gather pace. Doku’s sparkling display emphasized why City are so keen to bring him to the Etihad.
