Everton lose out on Mbokani... to Wolfsburg

Wolfsburg came out of nowhere to persuade Dieumerci Mbokani to go the Bundelsiga and turn down offers to the Premier League.

Steve McClaren has dealt West Ham and Everton's survival hopes a bblow by convincing Dieumerci Mbokani to shun the Premier League in favor of a switch to Wolfsburg.

The former Monaco man has been drafted in by the ex-England boss on loan with a view to a permanent switch as replacement for Edin Dzeko who moved to Manchester City earlier this month.

My opinion on this after the "jump"

What. The. Hell.

How in god's name were we not able to convince him to come here? Looks like our top two targets (Mbokani and Demba Ba) have both been taken on loan by other clubs. I am quite disappointed that we couldn't persuade Mbokani to come here. He struggled mightily at Monaco and it would have been a good pick up at a cheap price.

This seemed like the most promising of any of the transfer/loan rumors that involved Everton. I really didn't think we were going to lose out. It is definitely possible that we come out of this transfer window without any serious moves, and that could definitely something to worry about.

Let's hope for something exciting to happen during the end of this transfer window. God knows we need it.
