The Lowdown: Doucoure profiled
Doucoure is 21 years of age and already has seven caps for Mali under his belt.
Should Aston Villa sign Doucoure?
The Latest: Villa bid
Serie A side Atalanta and Premier League giants Arsenal are thought to be on Doucoure’s case, but it is Villa who are the first club to make a bid.
The report claims that the offer was worth £10m (€12m), however, Lens are holding out for a fee in the region of €15-€18m.
The Verdict: Doucoure in Nakamba out?
With Villa firming up their interest in Doucoure with an official bid, the future of Marvelous Nakamba could well be up in the air.
Should Villa manage to bring Doucoure to Villa Park, Dean Smith may well be willing to move Nakamba on – only time will tell.
