Doku links resurface & Thiago in solo training – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are now counting down the days until the clash with Watford, when the Reds will likely have a much-changed team – particularly in midfield.


Reds ‘best placed’ to sign Doku

A summer move for Jeremy Doku remains a distinct possibility…each and every summer, apparently.

We’re already mooted to be prepping a deal for the end of 21/22, with the Rennes winger a long-term target for Liverpool after a couple of attempts to land him already.

RTL have reported that Liverpool are “best placed” and the Belgian starlet could depart in 2022, with the fee expected to be over £25m.

It hasn’t been a stellar start to the new season for him, with injuries interrupting his new campaign and no goals to his name as yet.
