CM: Klopp wants the ‘new Mane’ at Liverpool but competition from Rangnick’s Milan may arrive

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could make a move to sign Anderlecht winger Jeremy Doku if Ralf Rangnick arrives as head coach, according to a report.

As Calciomercato.com notes, Doku became a starter for the first team at just 17 years of age, and has three goals plus four assists in 21 league games for the Brussels-based side in the current campaign.

He was actually close to joining Simon Mignolet, Gini Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane at Liverpool two years ago, but in the end he chose to join Anderlecht until 2022. This was a decision that was influenced by Inter striker Romelu Lukaku, who advised him to establish himself in Belgium before a big move.

The report continues by claiming that Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of Doku and wants to make him the ‘new Mané’, but competition is fierce.

Rangnick wanted to sign him for RB Leipzig and it difficult to think that his name will not be linked with Milan should the German take over this summer as head coach and sporting director.
