Fulham Reject Huge Striker Bid

Fulham are reported to have turned down a £27million offer from Tottenham for striker Aleksandar Mitrovic in January.

The 24-year-old had an indifferent time with Newcastle but has since found his feet with the Cottagers when helping them win promotion from the Championship last season.

Since making the move permanent, the Serbian has fired home 10 goals this season, despite the fact the Claudio Ranieri’s men have struggled with a relegation battle.

Such form caught the eye of Spurs, who were scouring the market to sign another striker after losing Harry Kane to injury, and it would now appear that Mitrovic was a target for Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham are reported to have made a £27million offer for Mitrovic, the same amount Fulham paid Newcastle, in January, but the Cottagers knocked it back as they battle to beat the drop.

Tottenham have yet to find an adequate back-up striker for Kane, and reports also suggest they will make another attempt to lure Mitrovic at the end of the season.

Their chances of success could hinge on what division Fulham are in next season, but a bid could be made nonetheless.
