Dieumerci Mbokani's agent claims Tottenham Hotspur are chasing the promising Anderlecht striker
Dieumerci Mbokani's agent claims Tottenham are keen to sign the Anderlecht striker although he believes Juventus currently head the queue.
Mbokani scored 15 goals last season for the Belgian outfit and has been hailed as the 'new Drogba' for his combative style of play.
According to his agent Fabio Baglio his eye-catching performances have drawn attention from a number of clubs, most notably Juventus.
"Juventus is most concrete suitor for Mbokani," Baglio told Het Nieuwsblad.
"Their interest is not new, because they followed 'Dieu' when he still played at Standard Liege.
"During this summer Juventus came forward late for him but in the meantime there were contacts between Anderlecht and Juventus.
"(The) previous week I was in Turin. I saw the Juventus match, they have an awesome team but there isn't a player like Mbokani.
"I don't know if Anderlecht could sell him in January, but there are many candidates."
Anderlecht signed Mbokani in summer 2011 as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku and are thought to want around £12m for the hitman.
"There is Fiorentina, which is building a new team, and in England Tottenham is the most interested player," Baglio continued.
"And then his performance at the San Siro (in their last UEFA Champions League match) did not leave Milan indifferent, either."
