Swansea look to Aleksandar Mitrovic to replace Manchester City bound Wilfried Bony

The Serbian youngster is considered one of Europe's hottest talents.

This summer saw Liverpool linked with a move for Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

In August it was reported that the club were looking into bringing him to the club to play alongside countryman Lazar Markovic.

The 20-year-old striker has been in top form since joining the Belgian side in 2013 - amid interest from Arsenal.

There is certainly a good reason why Liverpool are keen on his services. Mitrovic has banged in the goals since his move to Belgium.

Liverpool are not the only ones who have recently been rumoured keen on his services. Newcastle United were also said to want the £10 million star, who has been dubbed the 'Serbian Balotelli' for some of his behaviour on and off the pitch.

But this bad-boy goal-getter knows where the net is, so Liverpool and Newcastle are right to be keen.

However it looks like they could be about to get hijacked, by Swansea City.

Swansea are losing Wilfried Bony to Manchester City and Sky Sports have today reported that Gary Monk sees Mitrovic as the best possible option to replace him.

With Bafetimbi Gomis also at the club Swansea would not have to put early pressure on the young lad's head to thrive, taking him in and out of the team when fit and allowing him to mature into a top talent.

If Swansea did get hold of him, he could be as big a success story as Bony was at the Liberty Stadium.
