Dieumerci Mbokani has claimed that he rejected the chance to join Liverpool in favour of a move to Monaco.

The Congolese striker was reportedly the subject of interest from Liverpool during the summer but he opted to leave Standard Liege for France despite an alleged offer on the table from the Anfield club.

TalkSPORT reports that Mbokani had already given his word to Monaco and, although Liverpool made the 24-year-old an attractive offer, he was not prepared to go back on his promise.

He said: "Liverpool gave me a good offer but I had already given the 'OK' to Monaco and I could not turn back on them."

Mbokani is the latest forward to have reportedly rejected Liverpool during a frustrating summer transfer window for Roy Hodgson.

The Merseysiders were also rebuffed in their attempts to sign Carlton Cole, Ola Toivonen and Roman Pavlyuchenko as Hodgson tried desperately to find support for Fernando Torres.
