Aleksandar Mitrovic really likes the Championship, especially with Fulham, as the Serbian striker has played 33 games in England’s second division with the Craven Cottage side, and has scored 24 goals.
He did well in the Premier League too, but never quite reached the same heights, finding the back of the net 11 times in 37 appearances last season.
Still, this goalscoring record has caught the eye of a number of teams over time, with the latest being Genoa in Italy, according to PrimoCanale.
The club are looking for some attacking reinforcement in January, and it’s stated the Fulham man is a ‘suggestion’ for the Serie A side, alongside the likes of Anostosis Donis (currently at Reims on loan from Stuttgart) and free agent Hatem Ben Arfa.
As for what he would cost, PrimoCanale explain he would set back Genoa a fee ‘almost equal to his age’, so since he’s 25, we’re guessing they mean €25m and not €25.
That’s a considerable amount for the Italians, but it would be interesting to see what Fulham would do if presented with that choice.
After all, they spent £22.5m on him in the first place, and this would be a great opportunity to get their money back if they are in a position of need.
Over to you, Genoa.
