The Serbian striker has struggled for game time under Rafael Benitez at Newcastle United.
The 22-year-old striker has struggled to convince Rafael Benitez that he is worthy of a regular place in the starting line-up this season due to a rather unhelpful combination of missed chances and disciplinary concerns.
In fact, after he netted only his fourth goal of the season in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Wolves, Mitrovic was subbed at half-time with Benitez admitting that he was risking his side’s chances of victory by after picking up a booking in the first half.
Consequently, Ladbrokes believe there is a very real chance that he could be shipped out of St James’ come the end of the season with even his clear passion and adoration for the club failing to prevent a number of supporters from growing weary of his wasteful finishing.
The Daily Mail reported in December that Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace and Swansea City were interested in the £15 million frontman.
Sam Allardyce’s side will need to turn around their dismal form in order to retain their Premier League status and increase their chances of bringing Mitrovic to Selhurst Park though Ladbrokes make them narrow favourites at 4/1.
Christian Benteke’s substandard recent form, plus a long-term injury to Conor Wickham, means The Eagles may be in the market for another striker in the summer.
