Newcastle United could be set to lose their forward Aleksandar Mitrovic in the summer. The striker is currently on loan at Fulham since moving to London in January. He has bagged 10 goals for the club from Craven Cottage and has helped the cause of promotion for the club by putting them within a point of automatic promotion.
Fulham boss is simply delighted to have him in the team and would love to make his deal permanent. “He made a great job for us,” said Jokanovic. “The club took the right decision to bring him to help us. “I don’t know what will happen in the future. First of all, he’s a Newcastle player, and ahead of him is the World Cup (with Serbia).”
“I know he’s really happy with the team, with the club, with the city and for another side, he knows I’m satisfied with the level he offers us. “Everything’s open. If you ask me about if I want him with us, yes I want. In realistic life, we’re going to see. This job is for another side and not under my control.”
It seems that Newcastle could be set to lose him and hence must think of an ideal replacement for him. Here are three players they can look at.
His contract with Bournemouth is set to expire in just over a year and clubs are waiting around to move in for him. The forward was in good form this season before he got down with an unfortunate injury during the winter period. He netted a steady 12 goals in 20 appearances for Sunderland this season while on loan with them. He could be targeted by Newcastle to replace Mitrovic.
The Congolese striker is currently at Stade Rennais and was approached by Newcastle United in the summer but failed to get a move to England. He can also operate as a winger depending upon the requirements of his team and could be a versatile option to add.
West Brom are on the brink of relegation and the club will be losing out on big players including their hitman Salomon Rondon. The striker could be ready to part ways with the club for just £16.5m if they get relegated. Rondon is a proven quantity in the league making him a valuable signing to consider.
