English Premiership outfit Hull City are looking to sign a striker during the current Transfer Window with Dieumerci Mbokani on national duty.

The towering centre forward has been included in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) squad for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals.

Newly appointed head coach Marco Silva has confirmed that they are hoping to sign players including a striker this month.

"I hope to bring players in this week, we will see but I hope," said Silva on the Hull Daily.

"I work two training sessions with 15 players and it's 15 again today so it shows we need to do something fast to be more competitive against the other teams.

"If you want to improve our team, we need to do it fast."

The 2017 AFCON finals are scheduled to take place in Gabon and they will run from January 14 to February 5.
