Fulham star Aleksandar Mitrovic is a summer target for West Ham, according to a reliable insider.

Well-known Twitter insider EXWHUEmployee has confirmed in his latest podcast that Manuel Pellegrini is keen on signing Mitrovic (via WHUFC News).

With Fulham looking certain to be relegated, Mitrovic could be on the move again this summer.

And it looks like West Ham will offer the former Newcastle United striker the chance to stay in the Premier League and remain in London.

Mitrovic has been the standout player for Fulham in a disastrous campaign which has left the club 10 points adrift with 10 games to play.

In 28 Premier League games this season, the Serbia international has bagged himself 10 goals.

This added to his 12 goals in 17 games to help Fulham to promotion last season and he also netted 17 in 72 for Newcastle.

West Ham’s striker situation

West Ham could be looking to replace their entire strike force in the summer with uncertainty surrounding all of their forwards.

Andy Carroll is out of contract and has not performed well enough to merit an extension, while Lucas Perez has been dropped recently.

Marko Arnautovic tried to force a January move to China (The Times), Javier Hernandez has been linked with a return to Spain (Sky Sports) and Jordan Hugill does not appear to have a future in claret and blue.

Pellegrini could be searching for more than one striker and it appears that Mitrovic is on his radar.
