Report have emerged from Belgian outlet nieuwsblad of Liverpool’s renewed interest in taking Jeremy Doku to Anfield

Liverpool are willing to let Anderlecht keep the winger on loan for the rest of the season, he has scored 1 goal in 4 appearances so far.

Doku, 18, born in Ghana but represents Belgium at international level, he recently made his debut against Iceland picking up a goal along the way.

Speaking to HLN, Jeremy Doku parents spoke about when Liverpool tried to sign him when he was just 15.

“Mo Salah gave him his shirt. Jurgen Klopp had a long chat with us. He told us that Jérémy could be Sadio Mané’s long-term successor.”

“Liverpool showed us the school, the house where our family would live, the car that we would get. If we wanted, the club would find me a job. And also: we heard what our son could earn.”

“Jérémy was never interested: he didn’t want to move to Liverpool, nor to England. He cheered up when we said that we’d go home again. He replied: ‘Then I can go out to train with Anderlecht tomorrow’.”

As Jeremy Doku was only 15 it is not surprising that he felt that he was not yet ready for a move to England but since he has gone on to play for Anderlecht first team 32 times and the offer of staying another year in Belgium before coming to England could prove to be another Edwards masterclass.
