Report: Arsenal target £10m move for Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic

Arsenal are reportedly eyeing up a summer bid for Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

According to The Sun, Arsenal are looking to bring Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic to the club in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners splashed out for Danny Welbeck last summer, and have even seen Olivier Giroud smash 16 goals in 24 games in all competitions this season.

Despite that, it seems that manager Arsene Wenger is still keen to add even more firepower to his squad at the end of this season - regardless of how high they finish.

The Sun believe that Wenger wants to bring Anderlecht's Serbian international Mitrovic to the club, with the 20-year-old touted as one of the best target men of the future.

Mitrovic has scored 36 goals in 76 games for Anderlecht since arriving from Partizan Belgrade in 2013, and even scored a dramatic late equaliser for the Belgians against Arsenal earlier this season.

Arsenal were beating Anderlecht 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium in a Champions League group stage match, but after an Anthony Vanden Borre brace brought it back to 3-2, Mitrovic swooped to steal an injury time equaliser.

He'll therefore be a familiar face to Gunners fans, who may have been impressed with Mitrovic's strength and aerial ability - even if they may feel that they already have a similar type of striker in Giroud.

The Sun believe that Arsenal will pursue a £10m to lure Mitrovic to North London this summer, but there are likely to be plenty of other clubs in the running for his signature after his goalscoring exploits in Belgium.
