West Ham United and Everton have learned that Fulham have reportedly placed a £30 million price tag on Aleksandar Mitrovic’s head.
The relegated Premier League club are preparing for life back in the Championship, with the Serbia international highly unlikely to remain at Craven Cottage.
The 24-year-old had a good season on a personal level, scoring 11 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions.
The star has more than proved himself in the Premier League and both Everton and West Ham have recently been linked with his services.
Despite Fulham’s relegation though, the club still want to make money on Mitrovic, and the Toffees (interest reported by Sky Sports) and the Hammers (interest reported by The Evening Standard) will need to fork out £30 million to get him as reported by The Evening Standard.
£30 million seems quite steep for a player who has been relegated with his club.
It is understandable Fulham want to keep their player but at the same time he is a valuable asset that, if sold, can help set them up nicely for life back in the Championship.
West Ham are also looking at Salomon Rondon who has a £16.5 million release clause, which may mean Everton are the slightly more likely destination for Mitrovic, who currently earns £60,000-a-week according to Spotrac.
Cenk Tosun is likely to leave Goodison Park and the former Newcastle United man could be a like-for-like replacement.
