Fresh bid submitted for Fulham star

Fenerbahce have tabled a fresh bid for Aleksandar Mitrovic, according to Turkish outlet Yeni Safak.

The report suggests a loan offer has been submitted for the striker, believed to be worth £2.5m, with the possibility of a clause included which could see the Serbian move permanently for £15m.

Mitrovic has been at the centre of much transfer discussion this summer but so far Fulham have held firm and countered any offers made.

Fulham reportedly want £30m for the striker, an asking price which looks to have deterred interest from the likes of Real Betis and West Ham, and it would mean that Fenerbahce have little chance in signing him.

However, the Turkish giants have also reportedly offered Mitrovic £5m a year plus bonuses, and that could encourage the 24-year-old to request a move. In that case, Fulham may have to sell him for less than they wanted, or else risk keeping an unhappy player in the squad.

The Verdict

It appears that Mitrovic will leave Fulham at some point this summer, it is just a matter of where, how much for, and whether it will be on a permanent basis.

The Cottagers should consider this deal. Allowing him to leave on loan would still allow the club to bring in some extra funds, and if they do gain promotion then Mitrovic could come back into the team for the Premier League.

An asking price of £30m is quite high for a player of his quality, particularly as Fulham only spent around £20m on him last summer. He is a player deserving of playing in the top-tier so it is understandable if he wants to leave the club, and if Fulham want to sign Dwight Gayle then they need all the funds they can get their hands on.
