Everton are reportedly interested in signing Fulham attacker Aleksandar Mitrovic – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are fairly pleased with the speculation.
According to Sky Sports, the Toffees are “very interested” in bringing the 24-year-old to Goodison Park ahead of next season.
It is understood that the Serbia international wants to continue playing Premier League football next year, despite the fact his side were relegated from the top flight.
The report details that Marco Silva’s team are on the hunt for a new striker and the Fulham target man is high on their list of targets.
Mitrovic was unable to keep Fulham in the Premier League, but impressed leading the attack for a struggling team.
The centre-forward scored 11 league goals during the season and is a real physical presence that can trouble defenders.
A selection of Everton fans are convinced he would be an upgrade in attack for next season and that he could help fire them towards a European finish.
The Merseyside club lacked a prolific goalscorer in attack during the season, with youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin becoming the main striker option in recent months and Cenk Tosun being left on the fringes.
Here are some Everton fans discussing Mitrovic:
The amount of crosses Digne puts in I think he would score a few. Hes decent in the air.

Rather have someone with more pace but to say this fella puts it about is an understatement he’s abit like a Diego Costa and only 24 I think we could do worse wouldn’t wanna pay more than 25/30m though

Bullied us at Craven Cottage. Holds the ball up well. Aggressive, strong, good in the air. 11 goals last season in a struggling side. Could deffo get 15-20 for us.

Definitely an improvement on Tosun

I’d have Mitrovic but we still need another striker

Would be a good addition but as a back up / option. Not as the lead striker.

I think Mitrovic would be a good signing for Everton only 24 will get much better and already an upgrade on Calvin Lewin.
