The agent of Anderlecht striker Dieumerci Mbokani has confirmed the Congolese was the subject of an approach from a Premier League club during the January transfer window, amid reported interest from Liverpool and Tottenham.

It is claimed by the Daily Express that Tottenham and Liverpool, along with Newcastle, have been pursuing Mbokani, raising speculation that one of the Premier League trio made a bid for the 27-year-old in the last transfer period.

Tottenham's need for a striker has been well documented, given the poor form of Emmanuel Adebayor and injuries to Jermain Defoe, and like Liverpool were expected to reinforce their strikeforce in the New Year.

However, both Andre Villas-Boas and Brendan Rodgers failed to do so before the January transfer deadline, although both clubs have been mooted as the English team in question to have sounded out Mbokani.

Newcastle, along with Liverpool and Tottenham, are in contention to be revealed as the interested party, while Mbokani is also being chased by Italian trio Juventus, Inter Milan and Fiorentina.

"Mbokani is having a great season and I can confirm interest from clubs across the continent," said the player's agent Christophe Henrotay, according to the Daily Express.

"Juventus, Inter Milan and Fiorentina are all keen on him but nothing has been discussed as yet.

"I can confirm that there was a bid from an English club in January. I will not reveal the name of that club."
