Report: Newcastle target Aleksandar Mitrovic’s father holds talks with agent

St James Park

Chelsea, Newcastle United, Swansea City, AS Roma, Benfica and FC Porto are all reportedly interested in Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s father held talks with the youngster’s agent last night regarding his future, according to Hln.be.

It has been reported by the Belgian news outlet that the future of the Anderlecht striker is still uncertain, as a number of clubs around Europe remain interested in his services.

AS Roma have joined the race for the 20-year-old, according to HLN, while Portuguese giants Benfica and FC Porto reportedly remain interested in him.

According to a report in The Daily Mail last month, Premier League champions Chelsea are monitoring Mitrovic.

The British newspaper has also claimed that Swansea City and Newcastle United both are keen on the highly-rated young striker.

Amid such speculation, Mitrovic’s father held talks with his agent, Pini Zahavi, last night to discuss the future of his son, according to Hln.be.

Newcastle United must act quickly

It is clear that Newcastle are facing strong competition for Mitrovic, which means that the Premier League outfit need to act quickly.

Benfica and Roma both will feature in the Champions League next season, which means that they have a greater pull that the Magpies.

If Newcastle are serious about signing the Serbia international, then they need to step up and sort things quickly.
