Whispers surrounding Chelsea’s interest in Aleksandar Mitrovic have began to emerge, following the Serbian international’s prominent form in this year’s Premier League campaign.
What’s the word?
That is according to transfer insider Dean Jones who has informed GIVEMESPORT of the murmurs surrounding Mitrovic’s future, having garnered interest from some of league’s biggest outfits through his emphatic start to the season.
Jones has expressed that whilst there is not currently anything “specific” in regards to concrete rumours, there are whispers around Chelsea’s ambition to sign him, with the club thought to be monitoring his progress.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the insider said: “At the moment, there’s not really anything in this specific rumour, but it won’t be too long.
“I mean, there are murmurs that Chelsea are looking at Mitrovic, and if you score this many goals, then other teams will be looking at you too.”
There is no doubt that the 28-year-old Mitrovic is now in, if not entering, the prime of his career. He is taking games by the scruff of the neck, and scoring goals for fun in the top-flight this season, proving himself as a certified Premier League goalscorer along the way, having scored a total of 30 goals during his five stints in the league.
Six goals in just eight Premier League starts, following up from a record-breaking Championship goal-scoring campaign that saw the Serbian international hit 43 goals in 44 games is nothing short of astounding.
If he can keep up those returns once he recovers from his ankle injury, Europe’s elite will be forced to stand up and take notice.
There is no doubt that Mitrovic would be a golden asset to Graham Potter’s side, with his ability to get goals from nothing an unteachable attribute that he is truly blessed with.
Averaging around 2.2 shots on target per game in a Fulham side that has created just eight big chances bodes well for the Blues, who have accrued the same amount of big chances as the Craven Cottage outfit.
This total is bound to improve under Potter, which would theoretically see Serbia’s all-time top goalscorer, Mitrovic, shine with more opportunities to tap home.
