Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe has admitted that he’s never seen a player with the acceleration of Liverpool transfer target Jerermy Doku.


The 19-year-old talent has become one of the most exciting, young players in French football after making the move from Anderlecht to Stade Rennes last year for a remarkable £23.4 million.

Since then Doku has had to adapt to the French top flight, having scored just four goals and a further eight assists in 44 games.
However, despite a relatively low return this season, Mbappe has been blown away by the winger’s speed.
“Lately, I spoke with my father about a player whom I had noticed from the stands - because I was not playing - for his qualities of speed, it is (Jeremy) Doku, from Rennes,” the French striker said in an interview with France Football.
“In five years with the pros, I have never seen downforce that gives off so much power. In the ultra-fast players, I would also put Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
“Neymar too, especially before his injuries. He could change support at crazy speeds. There are other less explosive players at the start like Kyle Walker of Manchester City.
“It's like a tank that picks up speed once launched.”
