With Leeds United currently in the market for attacking options, could Dieumerci Mbokani be a reliable target?
The combative striker is set to end his five year stint with Ukrainian giants Dynamo Kyiv when his contract expires at the end of June.
The Congolese international has a strong experience of the English leagues having had stints with both Norwich and Hull City during the past two years and is known for his prolific ability to bag a chance.
Prior to his £11million move to Kyiv, Mbokani was prolific in the Belgian League for Anderlecht in which he scored 48 goals in 79 appearances, including 16 assists.
The combative striker then continued his form with 31 goals and 14 assists in 77 appearances for Kyiv. Most recently, Mbokani scored 12 goals in 29 appearances this season.
Mbokani could be a talented option in the Championship in which his strength and pace will be able challenge the best defenders in the league and will bolster Leeds’ currently inexperienced forward line.
With the departure of the un-prolific Pierre-Michel Lasogga, Leeds are lacking any strength in their forwards and will need varied options in a new look Marcelo Bielsa side.
The prospect of signing such a talented forward for free should entice a Leeds board who are operating on a small transfer budget.
