Aston Villa fans have long debated the relative merits of striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, and whether or not the Fulham attacker player was worth a closer look.
Having impressed some during his time in the Premier League previously, the Serbian international is again having a decent season in the second tier, returning 12 goals in 16 games, and following on from the earlier speculation suggesting we had an interest, former player Darren Bent has now thrown his weight behind the 25-year-old, believing he’s too good for the Championship and is likely set for a January departure.
“Come January, Mitrovic might be gone.”
“I could see a few Premier League clubs being in for him, like Aston Villa.” ✅

“I think come January, Mitrovic might be gone. 100 percent, I can see a few Premier League teams (that would be interested), like Aston Villa whose centre forwards aren’t scoring that many goals. He’s too good for the Championship Mitrovic. Big, strong, powerful target man, scores goals when given the service.”
Undoubtedly, the reaction to this is going to be mixed as although he has his supporters, he definitely rubs others up the wrong way given his style of play. Even if Fulham were tempted to sell, which I would think is unlikely given they sit in fourth spot at the moment, we’re not going to get change out of £30million (likely more given his new deal in fairness) and many will feel there are better options available at that price.
Unless there’s quicker, and significant, improvement from Wesley, I’d imagine Mitrovic will become a regular name on the rumour mill as January nears.
