Fulham set sale price for Aleksandar Mitrovic

Aleksandar Mitrovic scored 11 Premier League goals last season.

The striker bought last summer (2018) for £22m (potentially rising to £27m) after a successful loan spell.

Fulham seeing Mitro as the man to lead them into the Premier League and not only stay up but compete.

The main weakness was horrific defending and Newcastle scoring four on the final day, meant that the Cottagers ended the season with a massive 81 goals conceded.

There was still much debate though amongst Fulham fans about the other end of the pitch, Aleksandar Mitrovic had scored 11 goals but with his lack of mobility meaning the team had to play a certain way, was he more part of the problem than the solution?

What Fulham fans could agree on, was that Aleksandar Mitrovic could/would command a significant transfer fee, if the club decided to sell him and help finance a rebuild.

The London Evening Standard are now reporting that Fulham could sell Mitro, if somebody meets their £30m valuation. With West am and Crystal Palace reportedly interested.

The newspaper claiming that if somebody does come up with that kind of money, Fulham are looking to reinvest it on two strikers from north east clubs.

They say that Fulham are willing to pay £20m for Dwight Gayle and £15m for Britt Assombalonga.

Assombalonga scored 14 goals for Middlesbrough last season and £15m would represent them getting the money back that they paid Forest for the striker.

Whilst £20m for Dwight Gayle who scored 24 Championship goals on loan at West Brom, would see Mike Ashley double his money that was paid to Palace in 2016.

As for Aleksandar Mitrovic, if he was sold for £30 this summer, it would mean that at the age of 24 he had already commanded transfer fees of at least £70m.

Mitro moving for £4m from Partizan to Anderlecht in 2013, to Newcastle for £14m in 2015, then for £22m (potentially rising to £27m) to Fulham in 2018.
