Teenage Arsenal target scores brace in stunning international win

Aleksandar Mitrovic was at the double as Serbia pasted Belgium 3-0 in their own backyard.

Aleksandar Mitrovic may only be 19-years-old - but he already has the physique and scoring record any 26-year-old footballer in the pomp would be envious of.

The young Serbian has bagged an impressive 12 goals in 28 games for Anderlecht this season - and already has three caps and one goal to his name for the Serbian full national side.

Such impressive statistics and performances have not gone unnoticed - including Premier League teams snooping around.

One team who have been consistently linked with him in the past, even before he left Partizan Belgrade for Belgium, have been Arsenal.

They were reportedly pipped to the post by Anderlecht for his signature last summer - and they have continued to keep an eye on his progress since his move to Brussels.

And if they were in attendance last night as he returned to under-21 duty for Serbia they would have impressed.

He lead the line superbly against the nation where he currently plies his trade, Belgium, in a stunning 3-0 away win by his side.

He bagged the opening goal and the final strike in the match - leaving Belgium wondering how golden their next generation of players are.

Here are the highlights of the game…
