West Bromwich Albion have identified Anderlecht striker Dieumerci Mbokani as the ideal replacement for Chelsea bound Romelu Lukaku, according to the Daily Mail.

Lukaku has been a revelation in the West Midlands this term, bagging 14 goals in 46 games to help Albion attain their highest ever Premier League finish.

However, he is due back with his parent club at the end of the season and with Peter Odemwingie likely to never play for the club again, Steve Clarke has been left with just Shane Long as his only regular first team striker.

Clarke is already looking into replacements for the 20-year-old Lukaku and is reportedly ready to raid his forward club to make a move for DR Congo international Dieumerci Mbokani.

The 27-year-old has already made it known that he wants to test himself in the Premier League but the club’s chairman, Roger Vanden Stock,  could be a major stumbling block as he values the player highly.

“We have agreed Mbokani can leave in June, but only for the right price. English clubs have seen what Christian Benteke is capable of, and they know that Dieu is even better. He can be one of the best strikers in Europe, so I think the fee would be closer to 20million euros than 10,” he said.

Mbokani has been in impressive form this year, bagging 27 goals in 39 appearances, as he helped Anderlecht to another Jupiler League title.
