Premier League Powerful Forward Linked With Shock Move to Chelsea

September 19, 2018

Fulham centre-forward Aleksandar Mitrovic has reportedly emerged as a shock transfer target for Chelsea.

Mitrovic has found back of the net four times in his opening five Premier League appearences for the newly-promoted London club following his £22m summer arrival from the Newcastle United.

No player in England’s top two tiers has found back of the net two more goals than Mitrovic since he made his debut at Cottagers while initially on loan in February, and that form has allegedly drawn the attention of Stamford Bridge.

The Mirror reports that the Blues head-coach Maurizio Sarri has earmarked the 23-year-old as a potential target this summer due to lingering uncertainties about Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata future.

Chelsea could face stiff competition for his signature from a couple of unnamed Serie A teams, though.
