West Ham fans have been discussing the possibility of signing striker Aleksandar Mitrovic at the end of the season.

With Fulham looking destined for the drop, Mitrovic could become available in the summer if the West London side are relegated.

And after West Ham supporters had a chance to scout the Serbian target man firsthand in Friday night’s 3-1 win over Fulham, some have taken to Twitter to discuss whether he would be a good addition.

Mitrovic caused Issa Diop and Angelo Ogbonna some difficulties with his physicality but could not help Fulham in their hunt for points.

The 24-year-old had two shots (both off target), won two aerial duels and was not able to draw a foul or provide a key pass, as per Who Scored.

But some West Ham fans were still impressed with the ex-Newcastle United striker, who has scored 10 goals for the struggling Cottagers this term.

West Ham fan page ‘West Ham Gossip’ posed the question: “Hammers if Fulham do go down at the end of the season… Would you take Aleksandar Mitrovic?”

The majority of replies suggested that Mitrovic would be a good signing, although quite a few qualified their opinion by adding that he would be second choice.
