Fulham are “closer” to signing Aleksandar Mitrovic, according to the Times journalist George Caulkin.

After Serbia exited the World Cup at the group stages, it seems the Cottagers will now step up their attempts to sign the player on a permanent basis.

We reportedly want £20m for the 23-year-old, and most fans on Twitter are happy with that amount:

Verdict

Mitro did have a pretty decent World Cup but I don’t think there is a way back for him at St James’ Park. Rafa favoured Joselu and Dwight Gayle ahead of him last season, and I don’t think his situation has changed despite his performances for Fulham and for Serbia.

Whether we’ll get the £20m we are demanding, we’ll have to wait and see. Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic is said to be very keen to link up with his fellow Serbian once again after the striker scored 12 goals in 20 appearances in the Championship during the second half of last season.
