Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has emerged as a potential target for Tottenham Hotspur this summer as the club continues to sound out options to replace Harry Kane.
Naturally, Tottenham have been preparing for the eventuality of life without their star striker and have been linked with various attackers as potential replacements for the 30-year-old.
Spurs could swoop for Mitrovic from Fulham
However, the latest from 90 Min suggests Spurs could turn to a more experienced head as the replacement for Kane, with Fulham forward Aleksandar Mitrovic now believed to be on the North London club’s radar.
The report mentions the likes of Gift Orban, Elye Wahi, and Jonathan David as strikers linked to Tottenham, but adds that Mitrovic is on the list of options too.
Apparently, the “wantaway” attacker is still looking to leave Fulham after his proposed move to Saudi side Al Hilal fell through this summer. It is believed a bid of £30m was not enough to land the Serbian, with Fulham “demanding closer to £50m.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Mitrovic is a proven goalscorer who we know would come in and do a decent job for Spurs, but he is not a long-term replacement for Kane.
If we are going to have to spend close to £50m to get him, we may as well focus our attention on younger players who will serve our needs for years to come.
