Aleksandar Mitrovic is free to leave Fulham this month after falling down the pecking order under Scott Parker.

That’s according to Het Niewsblad, who say the striker will not be actively pushed out the club but is free to leave should an offer arrive.

Mitrovic has found himself increasingly out of the picture at Fulham in recent weeks. He started the season as first choice and maintained that until the end of November.

He’s started one league game since then, last month’s 1-1 draw with former club Newcastle, and instead played a substitute role.

That looks set to continue in the near future, with Fulham having explicitly stated their displeasure over the striker’s breaking of COVID regulations on New Year’s Eve.

That, among other things, has left the club ‘tired’ of the Serbian, say Het Nieuwsblad, and as such, they would be happy to sell him if the situation requires.

They say the striker is spending more time on the bench than he would like and can look for a ‘new employer’ this month.

While Fulham would not ‘actively’ look to sell him, he can leave if they receive ‘a good offer’ from any interested parties.

What the Cottagers asking price would be isn’t mentioned but it’s likely they would look to recoup as much as they can of the £22m they paid Newcastle in 2018.
