Aleksandar Mitrovic has become one of the fans’ favourites after showcasing his goal-scoring skills, as well as an unsatisfied hunger for playing football with all of his heart. In a way, the Serb has become the embodiment of what English fans love to see in football — the ability to fight ferociously for the ball every second of the game.
With all his skills and flaws, Mitro’s career has been going upwards — slowly but steadily. Fulham has been his home for some time now, but it seems that could change soon. Some speculate that it could happen as early as January 2020, during the mid-season window.
Who Wants Mitro?
It’s Aston Villa. The team is currently experiencing a serious problem, lacking an adequate attacker in their lines.
Wesley was good last season, but this time his heart doesn’t seem to be in it, as he had scored only four goals so far this season. On the other hand, Wesley’s replacements Jonathan Kodjia and Keinan Davis are both suffering from injuries and are currently unable to play for the Villans.
All of that resulted in an awful performance by the club that is currently in 15th place in the Premier League, and they need to open up their wallets and go for the best possible solution, and Mitrovic seems to be one of them.
What Are the Odds of Mitro Leaving?
It’s very hard to say at this moment, as nobody actually made an official statement about this. It’s all at the level of gossip right now. Sportsbooks don’t have an option to allow betting on whether a player would leave a club or stay during the transfer period, and that’s something they should definitely consider introducing.
Nevertheless, many sportsbooks that include football in their offer are improving their betting markets, and some of them even introduce additional activities for punters, including casinos, such as this Sportsbet.io new casino site.
Aleksandar Mitrovic — Stats, Achievements, Bio
Since the beginning of the 19/20 season, Mitrovic has been playing very well. It seems that Fulham has been utilising his potential successfully, putting forward his striking ability. So far Mitrovic appeared in 19 games and scored 15 goals. What’s even more impressive is his performance with the Serbian national team where he managed to score eight goals in five games.
All of this makes Mitro a very interesting player who could fit in the lines of Aston Villa. However, the management of Fulham also needs to approve this if Villa decides to make an offer. It’s very difficult to say whether they would accept it, as they seem pretty content with having Mitro on their team as well.
The 25-year-old Serbian striker has had a pretty interesting career. Born in Smederevo, Serbia, he became interested in football as a very young player and immediately started playing for Partizan, spending one season in the Serbian SuperLiga.
He was then sold to Anderlecht for €5 million where he had a solid performance, having scored 44 goals in 90 games. He spent two seasons in the Belgian Pro League and managed to win it with his club, becoming a top-scorer in the league in his second year at the club.
After that, he was noticed by Newcastle United that purchased the young striker for £13 million. Although Mitrovic enjoyed moderate success in the club, his real Premier League story began when he was on loan to Fulham where he helped the club come back to the top-tier English competition, making supporters of the Cottagers immediately fall in love with him.
