Mbappe compared Doku to players like Kyle Walker and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, revealing he has never seen a player like the 19-year-old.

In an interview with France Football, Mbappe said: "Recently, I was speaking with my father about a player who impressed me because of his speed qualities, that is (Jérémy) Doku, at Rennes.

"In 5 years as a professional, I have never seen someone from a standing start demonstrate so much power.

"In terms of an incredibly quick player, I would also put Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

"Neymar too, certainly before his injuries. He could change direction with crazy ease.

"There are also players less explosive from a standing start like Kyle Walker at Manchester City. He is like a tank once he hits his speed once he gets into it."

Doku's speed and form for Rennes has gained attraction from several suitors, including Liverpool.

The Reds were initially linked to the youngster in 2020, while he was at Anderlecht, but the Belgium international sealed a £20m to Rennes in the last summer transfer window.

He made 30 appearances in a Rennes side which finished sixth in Ligue 1 last year, and helped his side keep a draw against Mbappe's PSG in May, which ended up costing them the title.
