Norwich City have been linked with a £5.5m move for Dynamo Kiev striker Dieumerci Mbokani.

The 29-year-old, who scored three goals in 13 appearances for the Ukrainian side last season, is on the look-out for a move and City boss, Alex Neil, is reportedly keen.

The DR Congo international has previously played for Monaco and Anderlecht.

Meanwhile, reports suggest City could use Gary Hooper as bait in their desire to bring Celtic defender Virgil van Dijk to Carrow Road.

The Dutch defender is widely tipped for a move to the Premier League this summer and, it is being suggested, City could be willing to use Hooper in a potential swap deal.

Swansea, Southampton and Tottenham have previously been linked with Van Dijk, who would command a fee in the region of £8m.
