West Ham boss David Moyes is keen to sign Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic this summer, according to ExWHUemployee.
The Scot will undoubtedly be on the look out for an established centre-forward this summer. Hammers striker Sebastien Haller needs more quality competition and support and Albian Ajeti just hasn’t cut the mustard at the London Stadium.
And ExWHUemployee claimed that Fulham hitman Mitrovic is a potential option for West Ham this summer, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast (Thursday July 23rd):
“Going forward, Mitrovic at Fulham we are still showing an interest in.”
Fulham signed the Serbia international from Newcastle in the summer of 2018 for around £22 million (BBC).
And the 25-year-old has been a real hit at Craven Cottage with 37 goals in 77 league games for the Cottagers to his name (Soccerbase).
Mitrovic has been on fire for Fulham in the Championship this season, with 26 goals in 40 games. He has averaged 3.8 shots and won 4.6 aerial duals per game during those outings (Who Scored).
The west London outfit, managed by West Ham legend Scott Parker, finished fourth this season, and Mitrovic played a huge role in their successful campaign.
Fulham are set to take on Cardiff City in the play-offs. And if they fail to go up this season, perhaps the Hammers will be able to swoop in for Mitrovic and pick the Serbian up for a bargain fee.
