Norwich City are set to announce the season long loan of Dieumerci Mbokani from Dynamo Kiev, report talkSport.
Mbokani’s name was first mentioned a couple of months ago with Alex Neil confirming ‘he’s one we’ve discussed,’ a few weeks ago.
I have to say that I’d prefer to be signing him permanently but with ‘Grabbangate’ ongoing, I don’t think this will be our last piece of business before Tuesday.
The fact we have bid for Murray, Walters (only yesterday) and Afobe, makes me think we are in the market for another forward as well as Mbokani now. Much may depend on Grabban’s response to being suspended and Bournemouth’s desire to re-sign him.
If the Cherries coughed up £6-7m for Lewis then he may go, or he may just be sent to train with the youth team. There are a lot of questions still to be answered and Gary Hooper could still be set to move to Sheffield Wednesday.
Any new striker is always good though, loan or not.
