Mbokani to Juve?

Anderlecht striker Dieumerci Mbokani's agent has claimed that Juventus are in pole position for the Congolese forward's signature.

The 26-year-old - who appeared in the Belgium champions 0-0 draw with Milan on Tuesday - has been in impressive form this season, scoring three goals in five League appearances.

And Fabio Baglio, the player's representative, has revealed that the Bianconeri top the goalscorer's list of suitors, despite interest from other clubs in Serie A and England.

“Of all the clubs who have been following him, Juventus are the nearest,” he told Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsbald.

“Juve's interest is nothing new. They were looking at him when he played for Standard Liege, but they turned to him a bit late this summer.”

Juventus were searching for a quality striker all summer, considering Robin Van Persie and Fernando Llorente amongst others before eventually settling for Nicklas Bendtner.

“Is he going in January? I do not know,” Baglio added. “There are many clubs interested, but it all depends on Anderlecht.

“He is being followed by Fiorentina, who are a great team, and Tottenham. AC Milan could also be an option.”
