SOUTHAMPTON are planning a £30 million summer move for Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is planning a major revamp of his squad after steering them to Premier League safety this season – and big, aggressive goalscoring centre forward is one of his targets.
Mitrovic has netted 11 goals this season in a struggling team as Fulham were relegated from the Premier League, and the Serb, despite the prospect of a new deal being offered by the club, looks set to leave Craven Cottage, with West Ham also interested, as well as several Chinese Super League clubs.
Saints will make Danny Ings’ loan signing from Liverpool permanent this summer for an £18 million fee, but Charlie Austin has struggled for fitness, and fellow striker Shane Long has scored only five goals this season.
Fulham want to keep Mitrovic, whose goals were instrumental in helping them win promotion to the Premier League.
