West Bromwich Albion are moving for Anderlecht striker Dieumerci Mbokani.

The Daily Mail says Mbokani is the striker West Brom want to fill the gap likely to be left by on-loan Romelu Lukaku's return to Stamford Bridge.

With Chelsea expected to take Lukaku on their pre-season tour, West Brom's search for attacking reinforcements is underway, with powerfully-built Anderlecht frontrunner Mbokani top of manager Steve Clarke's list.

Anderlecht chairman Roger Vanden Stock said: "We have agreed Mbokani can leave in June, but only for the right price. English clubs have seen what Christian Benteke is capable of, and they know that Dieu is even better. He can be one of the best strikers in Europe, so I think the fee would be closer to 20million euros than 10."
