Fulham want to make Aleksandar Mitrovic signing permanent

Fulham are keen to press ahead with the permanent signing of Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The forward joined Fulham on loan from Newcastle United in January this year, and his 12 goals in 20 games helped propel The Cottagers in the play-offs and ultimately to promotion back to the Premier League.

The 23-year old joined Newcastle in July 2105 from Belgian side Anderlecht, but despite playing a prominent role in their own promotion campaign back to the Premier League a year ago, struggled for first-team football under Rafa Benitez, and was allowed to leave on loan.

According to The Sun Newcastle value Mitrovic, who is said to enjoy a good relationship with Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic, a fellow Serb.

Mitrovic played in all three of Serbia’s World Cup Group games, scoring in the second match against Switzerland, although his side ultimately lost that game. His side were eventually eliminated from the competition, but the forward had a good World Cup and left Russia with his reputation enhanced.
