Stade Rennais Mercato : After a remarkable season at the international level, the SRFC could be stolen one of its jewels by Juventus.
SRFC Mercato: Jeremy Doku targeted by Juventus
The summer is going to be hot at Stade Rennais. Still in the race for a qualification to the Champions League, the Red and Black should operate a significant mercato in the coming months, in the sense of departures as well as arrivals. Very active during the last summer, Florian Maurice will have to make room in the squad this year, including offering exit doors to several players. If some of them were pushed towards the exit like Jonas Martin, who was not extended by his management, others, on the other hand, could leave Brittany in case of a very good offer.
This is notably the case of the Belgian international, Jeremy Doku. Considered untouchable at the beginning of the season despite his disappointing first year at SRFC, the 19-year-old striker has gradually lost his starting place in Bruno Genesio‘s squad, due to numerous injuries slowing down his progress. If Doku’s talent is undeniable, his difficulty to impose himself after two seasons at Stade Rennais could push the club to consider a departure in exchange of a big check.
And precisely, on this file, there is no lack of courtiers. After Newcastle this winter, the Red Devil would have entered the short list of Juventus. According to the journalist Mirko Di Natale, the Bianconeri would have checked the name of the Rennes striker for a transfer this summer, especially if Moise Kean leaves.
Towards a Kean-Doku exchange between SRFC and Juve?
The interest of the Turinese for Jeremy Doku could benefit SRFC, which, for its part, began to prospect in Europe to strengthen its offensive axis. Ironically, the Bretons are said to have targeted Italian Moise Kean, who is no longer in good standing at Juventus.
The former PSG player, who left a beautiful mark in our championship, would greatly appeal to Florian Maurice who could be tempted by a trade with the Old Lady. For the moment, no such deal has been mentioned, but it is likely that the leaders of Stade Rennais consider this possibility, especially if their Belgian jewel does not quickly recover his level.
