Chelsea, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City are reportedly interested in Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has been quoted as saying by Sporza.be that he has an offer from AS Roma.

“Yes, I've a proposal from AS Roma,” Sporza.be quotes the Serbia international as saying. ”I do not know if I will accept it. Roma are a good team. I know Rudi Garcia well, he's a good coach."

"Together with my agent I will choose the best solution for my career. I will announce my new club soon. In addition to the interest of AS Roma, Benfica and Porto are also very interested.”

Interested clubs

Along with Roma, FC Porto and Benfica - as Mitrovic mentions - there are four Premier League teams interested in the youngster.

Tottenham Hotspur have made enquiries about the Anderlecht striker, according to Tuttomercatoweb.com, while The Daily Mail credits Chelsea, Newcastle United and Swansea City with an interest in him.

Good signing?

Mitrovic is a highly-rated young striker, and the fact that he is a regular for the Serbia national team shows that he is ready to join a big European club.

However, the problem is that the 20-year-old is still untested and will be a ‘gamble signing’.

True, the youngster has done well in European competitions, but he has yet to show his calibrate in a top domestic league.

What Tottenham need this summer is an established striker who will provide Harry Kane with competition next season.

The same goes for Newcastle. The Magpies would be better off trying to find a more experienced striker in order to break into the top 10 of the Premier League during the 2015-16 campaign.
