Mitrovic to Make Premier League Return

Mitrovic to Make Premier League Return

It was a disappointing season for Fulham as the club were relegated back to the Championship at the first attempt.  They were not the worst club in the Premier League but their fate was sealed well before the end of the season.

However, a handful of their players showed enough to suggest they could remain in the Premier League next season, all be it with a different club.  One of those players is Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Good Goal Scoring Record

Fulham scored 34 goals in the Premier League this season.  Almost a third of those were scored by Mitrovic.  The striker netted 11 times in 37 Premier League matches, which is a good return for a player in a team which has struggled all season.

It is thought Mitrovic has a good relationship with current Fulham boss Scott Parker but the Serbian international is not going to want another season in the Championship.

With good quality service, Mitrovic could be capable of scoring 20 goals in the Premier League and that makes the former Newcastle United man a tempting prospect.

West Ham United

West Ham almost lost their main striker in the winter transfer window when Marko Arnautovic was linked with a move to the Chinese League.  The Austrian could make the move in the summer and that would leave the Hammers short in attack.

Mitrovic scored one goal more than Arnautovic in the Premier League this season and at 24-years-old, he still has many years left at the top of the game.  He has a decent striker rate with his country, having netted 27 goals in 61 appearances and is not afraid to put a shift in for the team.

Mitrovic could be a great addition for West Ham and BetVictor offer Evens he will move to the London Stadium this summer.

Everton Interest

Everton have struggled to find a reliable striker this season.  While Dominic Calvert-Lewin is young and has the makings of a good forward, the goals have not been flowing.  The Englishman registered 6 goals in the Premier League while Cenk Tosun scored just 3 goals during the 2018/19 league campaign.

The Toffees need a player who is capable of reaching at least double figures up-front if they are to push on and break into the top six next season.  Mitrovic could be that man and the Serb is 2/1 with BetVictor to make the move to Everton before the close of the summer transfer window.

Other potential options in the Premier League include Southampton at 4/1, Tottenham Hotspur at 10/1 and Crystal Palace at 12/1.  However, it appears we could see a battle between West Ham and Everton for Mitrovic’s signature.
