Dieumerci Mbokani is close to making a return to the Pro League, signing for Seraing on a free transfer.
Mbokani is one of the most successful strikers the Belgian league has ever seen, ranking 10th in the division’s list of all-time top scorers, finding the back of the net 102 times in 203 matches across spells for Anderlecht, Standard Liege and most recently Antwerp.
He left the latter club last year for Kuwait SC but he has since decided to terminate his contract due to a dispute regarding his wages, and has stated that he’d be happy to return to Belgium.
That now looks set to happen with Het Laatste Nieuws reporting that the 36-year-old is close to signing for Seraing on a free transfer.
Second division side SK Beveren had hoped to convince Mbokani to join them, but preferring to play in the Pro League, he’s far more interested in his more recent offer.
HLN expect a final agreement to be reached next week.
