Liverpool could be in for a busy January transfer window if they decide to reinvigorate their squad for the second part of the 2022/23 campaign.

The Reds have had a poor start to the Premier League season, and a title challenge already looks to be beyond them, but are close to securing a spot in the Last 16 of the Champions League. There will be competition to secure a top four finish in the league while European football’s top prize could be an achievable target and adding more strength and depth to the first team squad could prove pivotal.

One player the Anfield side have been linked with in recent weeks is Belgian starlet Jeremy Doku but they could face competition from rivals like Arsenal and Chelsea for his signature if they do decide to pursue a move. Here is what the latest reports on Doku and the clubs interested in signing him are saying:

Doku targeted by ‘five big clubs’ including Liverpool and Premier League rivals

Spanish publication Fichajes have given the latest update on Jeremey Doku and claim that five ‘big clubs’ are currently interested in the Belgian winger. Liverpool are the first, as has been previously reported in multiple publications, while their Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea are also thought to hold an interest in the Rennes star.

Meanwhile, there is also attention from the Italian Serie A where Juventus and Napoli are mentioned and make up the five clubs. The latest report claims that Liverpool were the first club to express an interest in the 20-year old who they believe would fit well into Jurgen Klopp’s style of play.

Doku is one of the brightest young prospects in European football at the moment having already played 100 games of senior top flight football in Belgium and France including in the Champions League. The 20-year old was bought by Rennes for €26 million in 2020 and has been a key part of the Ligue 1 first team ever since. Despite his young age, Doku has already been capped ten times at senior level by the Belgian international side.
