Anderlecht striker Dieumerci Mbokani has revealed he hopes to leave the club in the summer and confirmed his preferred destination would be to a Premier League side.

And Mbokani feels the Premier League would represent the best challenge to him, although he has also refused to rule out a move to an Italian side.

He told reporters: "I am very happy to leave the club on a good note, now I need to think about my next move.

"England will be my first choice, but Italy also. I will soon be there to have a talk with the club. I heard about the interest of Liverpool, but nothing is concrete so far, it is paper talk."

A number of English sides including West Brom, Aston Villa, and Sunderland have been linked with a move for the ex-Monaco man.
