West Brom Monitor Unsettled Dynamo Kiev Striker

Baggies and Potters on alert as striker slams squad rotation system.

Check in to West Bromwich Albion vs Arsenal

West Brom and Stoke could be set to revive their interest in Congolese striker Dieumerci Mbokani, after the 27-year-old admitted he is unhappy at current club Dyamo Kiev, according to talkSPORT.

The forward had been a target for both sides during the summer while he was still at former club Anderlecht, though he made the move from Belgium to Ukraine instead.

However, despite 5 goals in 11 appearances for Oleg Blokhin’s side, Mbokani has found himself in and out of the team as his manager has elected to rotate his side, which is a policy that has not gone down well with the striker.

“I want to play every game,” Mbokani said.

“I do not appreciate the rotation system applied by the coach. I do not want to spend games on the bench – I need games on the pitch.

“Without games, I have no rhythm. The coach says he wants to prevent players getting tired but I need games.”

West Brom have been keen on signing a new striker since losing Romelu Lukaku at the end of last season, with the young Belgian scoring 17 goals in a highly successful loan spell at the Hawthorns.

However, Steve Clarke failed to bring the youngster in again for another season, as he instead opted to join Everton on loan from Chelsea.

West Brom did, however, manage to bring in Stephane Sessegnon from Sunderland, as well as veteran French striker Nicolas Anelka, in a bid to boost his options upfront.
