Report: West Brom, QPR interested in Dieumerci Mbokani, who is forcing transfer away from Dynamo Kyiv

West Brom - The Hawthorns

West Brom and QPR are keen on signing Mbokani, who is set to leave Kyiv this summer.

According to a report in HLN, Mbokani has asked to leave Kyiv this summer, putting West Brom and QPR on alert.

The 29-year-old DR Congo international currently turns out for Ukrainian giants Kyiv, but his lack of appearances has forced him to look for other playing opportunities at the peak of his abilities.

Head coach Serhiy Rebrov is reportedly not selecting him due to fitness issues, and a supposed lack of effort in training, and Rebrov is willing to see Mbokani depart the club.

He has made 13 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring just three goals, but that is not representative of his prolific goal scoring returns in other years.

Last term he netted 16 times in 33 games, whilst prior spells with Standard Liege and Anderlecht in Belgium saw him register an impressive 94 strikes in 192 games.

His prolific strike rate continues to international level, with 31 caps for DR Congo bringing a return of 15 goals.

West Brom and QPR have been long-term admirers in Mbokani, and the Baggies especially are keen on bring him to the Hawthorns as competition for Brown Ideye - his former striker partner at Kyiv.

Although his contract does not end until 2017, seeing as he is forcing a move away from the club, both interested parties are sure to be able to sign the forward on a cut-price deal this summer.

QPR may struggle to sign him if they are relegated to the Championship, an outcome that is looking likely, leaving West Brom to take advantage of his availability as Tony Pulis looks to bolster his attacking options in his first pre-season as Baggies head coach.
