Aleksandar Mitrovic discusses potential summer move to Swansea City

The Anderlecht striker was linked with a move to South Wales in January.

Swansea City are slightly light in the striker department after their star man Wilfried Bony left for Manchester City in January. That leaves just Bafetimbi Gomis as a genuine selection for the club going forward, along with loanee Nelson Olivieira.

The club were linked with plenty of striking options in the January window, including Anderlecht talent Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Serbian international was linked with the club at the start of January, with the Daily Mail suggesting the Belgian club wanted £15 million for the services of the young talent.

Of course no deal ever went ahead, but could Swansea swoop in again in the summer. If they did, Mitrovic has now been speaking about what he would do. He told Belgian paper Het Laatse Nieuws, as quoted by Sporza, that he has no overwhelming desire to leave Anderlecht. However, he did praise The Swans:

"At this time, I really have no reason to leave."

"Everything depends on the clubs that I want and the money requested and provided. Since I am not doing. I feel happy here and do not think about what will happen. I leave that to my father. With Anderlecht still we fight on three fronts. All my attention is there. "

"The Premier League? That's not a dream, I would love to play. The interest of Swansea? There are many reasons why a choice can be good and why not. Swansea is a stable club in the Premier League. But for me the most important thing that I can play and get better. "

Mitrovic has been in fairly good form this season, scoring 12 goals in 29 appearances including strikes against both Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League - so he is certainly proving his worth as one of Europe's top young strikers.

With Swansea desperately light up top, a move for Mitrovic would not go amiss in the summer.
