Premier League leaders Chelsea are reportedly interested in the signing of Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic when the January transfer window opens.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is said to be impressed with his performances this season in the Premier League scoring four goals in four games for his club.
The Serbia international also scored two goals for his country in their last game against Romania.
According to the report by Daily Mirror, Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri has doubts over Alvaro Morata considering how the Spaniard is struggling to score this season.
The former Napoli coach is now targeting 23-year-old striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and the player could be on his way to Stamford Bridge next year.
Mitrovic joined Fulham on loan last winter but secured a permanent move to west London after scoring 12 goals in 15 games to help the club gain promotion to the top-flight.
Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Serbia international Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a brace for his country against the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a friendly game played in London.
Nigeria lacked quality in the midfield and the final third as the best chance for the Super Eagles came through Victor Moses in the first half whose shot was parried wide.
