The Lowdown: Spurs’ business thus far
Entering the final stretch of the transfer window, Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo will be desperate to conclude any outstanding business as he plots a successful season for the Lilywhites on both domestic and European fronts.
Recruiting for the forthcoming year with the long-term in mind, the Portuguese coach has managed to bring in four bodies in the form of Bryan Gil, Cristian Romero, Pierluigi Gollino and Pape Matar Sarr [Transfermarkt], adding plenty of youth to the ranks in north London.
Now, they could be set to snap up one of the most prodigious talents in Europe following recent reports.
Would Doku be a good signing for Spurs?
The Latest: Tottenham rival Liverpool for Doku
Nuno is said to be very keen on the prospect of bringing the Belgian wide-man to the capital, with only Lucas Moura naturally situated as a right-winger within his current roster.
It could cost up to €50 million (£42.9m) for Tottenham or Liverpool to land their man.
The Verdict: Doku would be a very promising arrival
Widely heralded as one of the most promising talents in Europe, Doku would surely prove to be a popular signing in N17 who could develop into being an important member of the Tottenham line-up.
In 2020/21, Doku gave an impressive account of himself, registering 12 goal contributions from 44 appearances combined in all competitions for both his current employers and former club Anderlecht; four goals and eight assists [Transfermarkt].
Continuing his rich vein of form into the new campaign, the Borgerhout-born man has averaged a successful dribble ratio of around three per fixture in Ligue 1, showing his speed and propensity to skip by opposition counterparts [WhoScored].
Once labelled as a ‘diamond in the rough’ by Manchester City talisman and Belgium teammate Kevin De Bruyne, Tottenham should look to snap up his services and give him a platform to blossom at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium [Ghana Web].
