Tottenham will target Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic in the summer if the Championship side fail to achieve promotion to the Premier League, according to 90min.
Mitrovic has scored 22 goals in 31 league appearances so far this season, giving credence to the argument that he is too good for the second tier of English football and should return to the top-flight.
The former Newcastle United striker was Fulham’s top scorer in the Premier League last season but ultimately could not help the Cottagers avoid the drop. He will be hoping to fire Scott Parker’s side back to the big time this term – but a big move could be on the cards if Fulham fail.
90min claims Mitrovic is on the summer shoppings lists of both Spurs and Chelsea, but only if Fulham’s promotion push does not come to fruition. Parker’s men are currently third in the table, five points off the second automatic promotion spot.
They are just four points clear of seventh place, so consolidating a play-off spot will be their main priority in the comings weeks. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, however, may be secretly hoping Fulham remain in the Championship so that Mitrovic is easier to lure.
The 25-year-old Serbian would be an ideal deputy to Harry Kane, but he would have to settle for spending plenty of time on the bench if the England captain stays fit next season.
