Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has already made up his mind on Aleksandar Mitrovic according to North-East reports today, with the Championship side ready to push for a permanent deal for the Serbian in the summer – providing they seal promotion to the Premier League.
The Northern Echo report that Fulham may have to earn promotion to make a deal possible, however, with the extra cash windfall of a return to the top flight seeming essential to pull off a deal which may cost them upwards of £15m if he continues to impress.
Mitrovic has settled in superbly well at Craven Cottage, scoring two goals in his last two appearances and impressing fans in each and every one of his five appearances for the club so far.

The Serbian is seen as the ideal target man to aid their attacking style of play and give them a focal point up top, with his signing helping them move five points clear of 7th place in the play-off race.
The Echo claim that former club Anderlecht still hold an interest in bringing him back to Belgium, but whether they could pull off a permanent deal is another matter.
