The reigning European champions Manchester City have signed Belgian international Jeremy Doku to a five-year contract.
Doku has been an important player for Stade Rennais in the French Ligue 1 and has drawn interest from various clubs in the top European Leagues.
The 21-year-old, who is seen as a long-term successor for the departed Riyad Mahrez, who joined Al Hilal in the Saudi Pro League, has been persuaded by Manchester City, though.
“This is a great day for me, both personally and professionally,” Doku said.
“Manchester City are the best team in world football, so to be joining them is something very special for me and my family.
“I am a young player with so much learning and improving to do. Working with Pep and his staff, and playing alongside these work-class players, will make me a much better player. I feel sure of that.
The swift winger joins a host of prolific forwards who succeeded in winning the Treble last season and is eager to add his skillset to the Cityzens.
“Watching City last season was amazing. To win the Treble is the hardest thing in football and they did it. You cannot imagine how exciting it is to be joining this team.
“I cannot wait to get started. Hopefully, I can make the fans happy” he added.
