Tottenham to battle Manchester United and Arsenal for Doue brothers

Tottenham Hotspur have entered the race for the signing of French club Rennes young stars, brothers Desire Doue and Guela Doue in the summer, with Premier League rivals, Manchester United and Arsenal also in the fray.

Doue brothers were attracting the European top clubs by their performance for Rennes in the Ligue 1. Desire Doue the younger one, is the most demanded among the brothers. The 19-year-old winger has five goals and four assists from 31 games in the last campaign. The youngster has already been praised by his teammates, they described him as the ‘best they have seen.’

The 21-year-old elder brother, Guela Doue, played as a right-back for the French side. Both of them were Rennes academy players and signed their first professional contract in 2022.

After the brothers became a mainstay for Rennes, the club is expecting £35million for Desire and a decent price for his brother too. The Premier League clubs Manchester United and Arsenal are front in the race, which Spurs joined recently by enquiring about the conditions to sign the Doue brothers from the French side, per Express

“We know today’s market, notably for the very young players,” Stephan said last month. “He will decide through his personal ambition. I’m not naive.”

said by Julien Stéphan, when asked about the interest of Premier League clubs in Desire.

Ange Postecoglou will include the Doue brothers in his priority list for the summer transfer. The youngsters can be signed on a long-term contract and if they continue their form in the latest campaign, they will help Postegolou fix the current issues at his club. It is questionable whether Spurs go only for Desire, as they need a forward player at the earliest.

But they will also consider defenders in the summer as backups for both Destiny Udogie and Micky van de Ven, who picked up lengthy injuries in the last campaign, so the chances are high to sign both players by the Lillywhites. We have to wait and see, which all clubs will join the competition to have the siblings from Rennes.
