Aleksandar Mitrović is a striker who is currently playing for Fulham. A hot prospect in his earlier years and a Serbian international, he was signed at the last minute on transfer deadline day in January 2018 on loan from Newcastle United and played a large part in Fulham's promotion to the Premier League. A permanent transfer was then sorted out between the two clubs during the summer, for £22 million rising to £27 million.

CareerEdit

Before Fulham Edit

Fulham (2018-present)Edit

Aleksandar joined the club on 31 January 2018 in a last minute loan deal on transfer deadline day. He had been in Belgium on the verge of re-joining his former club Anderlecht on loan, however they failed to sell another player in time to finance the move and Aleksandar took a flight back to England to quickly sign a deal with the Whites for the rest of the season.

He scored his first goal for Fulham in a 1-1 draw with Bristol City at Ashton Gate on 21 February 2018, followed up with a fantastic strike which sealed a 2-0 victory three days later against table-toppers Wolves at Craven Cottage.

His goalscoring form did not stop and he eventually managed 12 goals in 17 league games. His goals and Fulham's form earnt the club a return back to the Premier League, as promotion was assured in a Play-off Final victory at Wembley Stadium on 26 May 2018.

Upon returning from the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Aleksandar was signed permanently for a reported fee of £22 million, rising to £27 million on 30 July 2018.
