European champions Manchester City have secured the signing of Belgium international Jeremy Doku on a five-year deal.
Doku has been a key player in the French Ligue 1 for Stade Rennais and attracted interest from several clubs in the elite European Leagues.
However, Manchester City have successfully convinced the 21-year-old who is identified as a long-term replacement for the departed Riyad Mahrez who joined Al Hilal in the Saudi Pro League.
“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.
