Fulham are looking to pull off the pre-deadline signing of Aleksandar Mitrović on loan from Newcastle.

The Whites have targeted the Serbian striker, 23, after a proposed move to Anderlecht seemingly collapsed.

A number of other clubs have expressed an interest in Mitrovic but he could end up at Craven Cottage if a deal can be pushed through in time.

Fulham have also been holding talks over a possible deal to sign Middlesbrough’s Republic of Ireland international defender Cyrus Christie.
