West Ham target Aleksandar Mitrovic will let Fulham decide where his future lies this summer, according to a report by The Daily Star.
Mitrovic has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League after Fulham’s relegation. But he will not push for an exit this summer.
Instead, he will allow Fulham to make the final decision on his future. If the West London club feel that selling him is the best option, then he will move on.
But if they want to keep him for a promotion push next season, Mitrovic will not be angling for an exit. West Ham now have to wait to see what Fulham think.
The Aleksandar Mitrovic hunt
Several clubs are keen on Mitrovic. This includes West Ham, who have made the Serbia striker their top target with a Maxi Gomez deal looking dead.
According to this report by The Daily Star, West Ham, Brighton and Watford are all monitoring this situation and are readying swoops.
But Sky Sports News adds that Everton want the 24-year-old. Meanwhile, Southampton have been linked with a £30m move, as per The Express. And another report from The Express suggests that Chinese Super League clubs want Mitrovic for £50m with a £300k-per-week wage on the table.
The former Newcastle striker scored 11 goals for Fulham this season after making him move to Craven Cottage permanent. But he could not keep them up and now the race is on.
