Crystal Palace are looking to sign Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, according to The Standard.

The Serbian was one of the few players who impressed during Fulham’s ill-fated season in the Premier League, justifying his £24 million price-tag with 11 goals.

And Mitrovic looks set to be rewarded with a big money move after The Cottagers’ relegation. The Standard reports that a Crystal Palace side who have bid farewell to loan star Michy Batshuayi have identified the former Newcastle targetman as a potential replacement.

 

Roy Hodgson’s side will likely face competition from West Ham, however.

Manuel Pellegrini’s Hammers are expected to revamp their forward line with Javier Hernandez, Andy Carroll, Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll all expected to leave this summer.

The Londoners are also eyeing Celta Vigo’s Uruguayan international Maxi Gomez, who has scored 14 goals to keep the Galician outfit safe from relegation with a single La Liga game remaining. Celta are expected to demand £43.5 million.

According to The Express, Mitrovic is valued at £30million, meaning Palace will have to equal their transfer record to get their man.
