Belgian side Anderlecht are still in talks with a number of Premier League clubs over the sale of striker Dieumerci Mbokani, according to Sky Sports.

The 27-year-old has been tipped to head for England this summer after declaring that he wants to test himself in the Premier League, though the Brussels based side have reiterated that they will not let him go for any less than the £12 million they’ve quoted.

West Bromwich Albion had been thought of as the frontrunners as they look to replace Romelu Lukaku, who has now returned to parent club Chelsea, however, in recent weeks Fulham and top flight new boys Hull City have also entered the race, with the latter reportedly having an £8 million bid rejected.

Ukrainian giants Dinamo Kiev have also been credited with an interest but the Congolese target man is set to snub their advances after stating that England is where he wants to go.

An Anderlecht spokesman confirmed that talks with the forward are ongoing, though no concrete bids have been received.

“There are no bids, but that is not to say talks are not happening – we understand a number of clubs want Mbokani, but that is only natural as he is a fantastic footballer,” the spokesman revealed.

“But we will not let him go for less than what we think he is worth, however if there is agreement between the three parties, then he can move.”
