Lorient striker Moukandjo subject of £9m Hull offer

Hull City have reportedly made a £9million bid for Lorient's Benjamin Moukandjo.

Reports suggest that the Tigers have lodged the offer for the 27-year-old Cameroon striker after scouts watched him score twice in the weekend's Ligue 1 win over Caen.

Moukandjo netted twice in the opening 20 minutes before Caen stormed back to win 3-2 after Lorient lost Zargo Toure to a red card.

The former Nancy forward joined Lorient from Reims last year and has since scored 15 goals in 35 outings for the Brittany club.

Hull are determined to strengthen they threadbare squad before the end of August to give current caretaker Mike Phelan something to work with in the wake of their surprise season opening win over reigning champions Leicester City on Saturday.
