Premier League giants keen to sign Aleksandar Mitrovic – but his price tag has ‘soared’ – Report

According to The Mirror, Aleksandar Mitrovic has now emerged as a target for Chelsea – with the Blues believed to be one of several clubs who have been highly impressed by the Serbian so far this season.

As we all know, the 24-year old was sold to Fulham for £22m this summer, with him going on to score four Premier League goals in five appearances so far this season – also netting twice for Serbia during the recent international break.

He’s had a brilliant 2018 and is thriving in a side that know exactly how to play to his strengths at Fulham, with The Mirror’s John Richardson now claiming that Maurizio Sarri is ‘monitoring’ the striker after being unsure about current options Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.

The piece does insist that he would not come cheap should Chelsea (or anyone else) come calling in January, stating that his asking price has already soared after his impressive start to the season – which is saying something given he was sold for £22m rising to £27m just a few months ago.

Does this prove that Rafa was wrong not to give him more of a chance, or do you feel that Benitez’s system and our style of play was never suited to get the best out of Mitrovic?

  1. Typical hot air story Olly. No foundation whatsoever.

    Who have they played so far? It’ll take a couple of games for the prem teams to adapt to their Championship style and Fulham, and Mitro will be shown to be the 2nd rate team that they are.

    Plus – its a bit iffy saying his price has soared then not giving a number or a reference. Soared would suggest 40 million plus. Really?

    Don’t think so mate.

  2. This is just another re-hash of was Benitez right to offload Mitro.

    The answer is of course YES because we don’t attack under Benítez so was never going to flourish!!

    I’m quoting what John Richardson has been saying in The Mirror. Bit unfair to shoot the messenger here..
