Transfer: A new striker soon in Rennes?
While the Bretons have just been awarded their Europa League Conference group (Tottenham, Vitesse Arnhem, Mura), the coach Bruno Genesio had announced during a press conference this afternoon, that the leaders of the SRFC were activated internally to enlist a striker capable of relieving the team in view of the various deadlines of the season. ” We are discussing with my leaders, with Florian Maurice, to find out what we can possibly improve. We still have four days before the end of the transfer window, to think about it and possibly bring an extra to this team, especially in the offensive field. “
The recent injury of Jeremy Doku (for at least 15 days) has made the arrival of a new striker in Brittany imminent and it seems that the choice has already been made. According to the tabloid Football Insider, Stade Rennais has been tracking for several days the striker of Hull city, Mallik Wilks, author of a fantastic season in League One (English third division) last season. The Rennes board is preparing to make a first offer for one of the most prominent players in England.
If the SRFC is on the spot, other European teams like the Borussia Mönchengladbach also positioned themselves for the 22-year-old forward. Under contract until next June with the Tigers, the player trained in Leeds scored 19 goals and made 8 assists in 44 league games last season. A very nice pickaxe for Rennes if that were to materialize.
