Everton are ready to swoop for AS Monaco striker Dieumerci Mbokani.

The Daily Mail says Everton are making room for Mbokani by offloading Yakubu Aiyegbeni on-loan to Leicester City.

Mbokani was also on West Ham United's list but the uncertainty over Avram Grant's position has allowed Everton to step in and they are hopeful of agreeing a loan deal for the Monaco striker.

The forward complained only yesterday that he felt he was being frozen out at ASM.
