Tottenham target Aleksandar Mitrovic would be a fine upgrade on Fernando Llorente

Tottenham’s Fernando Llorente has done a decent job as the understudy to Harry Kane this season and stepped in well at striker when needed.

The 33-year-old centre-forward has seven goals in 20 games across all competitions and deserves credit for his perseverance.

But he is still sluggish at times in attack and the North London club could find a better option to compete with talisman Kane.

According to TEAMtalk, Spurs are interested in Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and could make a move in the summer alongside Bayern Munich for him.

The report details that Mauricio Pochettino’s side were keen on him in January are prepared to fork out £27million, but Fulham refused as they need him for their fight against relegation in the Premier League.

With Mitrovic in Spurs’ sights for the summer, he could be an excellent upgrade on Llorente.

 

Mitrovic is a powerhouse striker that has proven himself to be more than capable in the top flight, with 10 league goals so far this campaign for a struggling Fulham.

The 24-year-old can lead the line by himself excellently well with his strength and aerial ability, while at his age he is still improving.

He is a goal machine when he represents his nation Serbia and still has so much potential to reach in English football, which is why a switch to the top-six club could be the making of him.

Mitrovic would provide a more youthful option than Llorente to compete with Kane and it would be strengthening the squad.
