Monaco's Mbokani reiterates his desire to join Everton

AS Monaco striker Dieumerci Mbokani is desperate to leave the French Ligue 1 club and wants to land at Everton.

The DR Congo international has struggled in France since leaving Belgian outfit Standard Liege in the summer and even with a change of coach at the Stade Louis II, the 25-year old is still keen to link up with the Toffees at Goodison Park.

"I stand by my decision," he told French daily L'Equipe.

"I still want to leave, I haven't changed my opinion. It has come too late.

"I have told the vice-president (Michel Aubery) that if he had an offer for me, he must accept it."

And Mbokani insisted he will score goals with a new club as the system at Monaco simply does not work for him.

"I have had a difficult spell, it's true, but what footballer hasn't?" he continued. "The whole team has struggled," he added.

"How can you judge me on 10 games? Also, I was bought to score goals, but in this system I have to defend a lot. Often, it feels like I am playing in midfield.

"If I continue to work like I have, you will see goals.

"I will score goals, here or elsewhere."
