Liverpool are few steps away from securing Jeremy Doku's service according to a report

Now, according to a close source, talks between French Ligue one club Stede Rennes and Liverpool have reached advance level, with the Reds ready to meet the player's €30million fee demanded by the Rennais.

Doku starred in Belgium Euro 2020 squad last month and made his senior club debut at Anderlecht in 2018 before Rennes snapped him up for €26 million (£22m/$31m).

The 19-year-old revealed earlier this year how he snubbed offers from three Premier League clubs,  including  Liverpool in favour of a move to Roazhon Park, having been offered some perspective on his future during discussions with Mane.

Doku said in March: "I was going to be 16 and that was the age you can sign a pro contract. A lot of teams came to see me," Doku told Ouest-France .

"Everyone talks about Liverpool because it was the most concrete interest but there was also Arsenal and Chelsea.

"I was able to discuss with Jurgen [Klopp], Mane, [Georginio] Wijnaldum… [Steven] Gerrard too. I talked a lot with Mane but we didn't really talk about football. We talked about everything.

"He told me that I was young, that I still had time… he wasn't trying to convince me or to say to me 'come here, you will succeed'.

"I preferred to be careful. I know what my trajectory had to be. That’s why, at 15, I told myself it had become serious, because I’d seen my career. I know what route I needed to take and I knew at that moment I needed to stay at Anderlecht.

"As soon as I’m asked if I regret it, I always say no, because if Liverpool came to me at 15, if they like me, they’ll come back later, that’s certain. It’s up to me to be play well."
