Mbokani happy at Anderlecht despite Premier League interest

Anderlecht Dieumerci MbokaniFulham and Tottenham target Dieumerci Mbokani has insisted that he is unlikely to leave Anderlecht in January, report talkSPORT.

The striker has been linked with the Premier League duo following a series of impressive displays in the Belgian league, in which he has netted 16 times already this season.

He will journey to the African Cup of Nations in the New Year, representing the DR Congo team, and believes that he’ll return to Anderlecht following the tournament, so long as a particularly tempting offer is not received:

“Unless an exceptional offer arrives in January, I will remain here until the end of the season.” He told Sporza.be.

“I am doing well at Anderlecht and I will leave soon for the African Cup of Nations.”

The 27-year-old joined his current club in 2011 from AS Monaco after an unsuccessful spell in France.

He cost a reported fee of just over £2m and cited playing alongside ex-Liverpool attacker Milan Jovanovic as a major reason behind his decision to return to Belgium.

The 6ft. 1” forward has been widely praised for his combination of pace, power and technique and has been previously linked with a Premier League switch.

It’s unclear as to what fee he would command, but Anderlecht would likely look to make a healthy profit on their investment.
