The £22m fee would put Tottenham’s Paratici on red alert, Newcastle interested

Newcastle United are said to be interested in signing Rennes wonderkid Jeremy Doku, for a fee of £22m being offered. But with such a low price tag, surely Tottenham should put Toon aside and lure him to London?

Doku, 19, has had to endure a difficult 2021-22 campaign – with knee and hamstring injuries leaving him with just 12 appearances in all competitions. The take note despite this, it is reported that Newcastle scouts are looking at the Belgian.

But he excelled at Euro 2020 and boasts more potential than most players his age across Europe. Indeed, he played the best part of 100 high-profile matches for Anderlecht, Rennes and Belgium combined.

Newcastle are expected to spend big in the summer and it looks like Doku could be the man they want to bring in. But surely, with such a low price tag, there will be others interested in Doku – and Tottenham must be one of them.

For £22m, Tottenham should put Newcastle aside and sign Doku

Antonio Conte admitted his surprise and disappointment at Tottenham’s decision to bring in just two players – after losing four. He also alluded to Tottenham’s decision to sign younger players rather than experience.

It was different from what he expected, but it was the blueprint given by Fabio Paratici. The Italian head coach only signed players below their peak years – Cristian Romero, Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur.

Those players came with low transfer fees. Luis Diaz and Adama Traore are also targeted for January, again, around or under the age of 25. Doku meets that audience – a young player with potential, for a low fee.

Spurs can do it with another player. Steven Bergwijn is struggling, Lucas Moura is inconsistent and Kulusevski can turn into a full-back or number 10. Doku is labeled ‘diamond’ by Kevin De Bruyne in 2021.

So, all things considered, Doku’s potential and £22m price tag have had to tempt Paratici to beat Newcastle and sign the Rennes winger this summer. Everything is in line with what Paratici is trying to do at Spurs.
