Manchester City have completed the signing of Belgium winger Jeremy Doku from Rennes for £55.4m.

Last season’s Treble winners have agree a five-year contract with the 21-year-old, who scored 10 goals in 75 Ligue 1 appearances across three seasons.

Doku, who has 16 caps for Belgium, has taken the number 11 shirt.

“This is a great day for me, both personally and professionally. City are the best team in world football, so joining them is special,” Doku said.

Doku becomes Pep Guardiola’s third summer signing after midfielder Mateo Kovacic arrived for £25m from Chelsea and defender former RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol joined for £77m.

West Ham, Tottenham and Chelsea had also been interested in signing Doku, who scored seven goals in 35 games last season.

Doku had two years left on the five-year deal he signed when Rennes paid 26m euros to sign him from Anderlecht in October 2020, shortly after he made his international debut as a teenager.
