Several other clubs are also interested in him
Chelsea had a busy summer as they were looking to bolster their squad after an underwhelming campaign, despite winning the FA Cup back in May. Maurizio Sarri was appointed as the new manager after Antonio Conte was sacked.
The Italian has brought players like Jorginho from Napoli, Kepa from Athletic Bilbao and Mateo Kovacic on a season long loan from Real Madrid during the summer transfer window. The Blues also managed to keep hold of key players like Eden Hazard, Willian and N’Golo Kante, as they were heavily linked with exits.
The London outfit have won all the 5 Premier League fixtures so far this season against Huddersfield, Arsenal, Newcastle United, Bournemouth and Cardiff City. They are only 1 of the 2 teams to have 100 percent record, others being Liverpool.
They have been tipped off as one of the favourites to win the Premier League title this season after an excellent start. However, it has been suggested they could further strengthen the squad during the January transfer window to mount a genuine title challenge.
Chelsea are among the clubs looking at Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic after his strong start this campaign, according to the Mirror.
The Serbia International joined the Cottagers on loan for rest of the season from Newcastle United back in January. He scored 12 goals in 15 appearances and helped the club to earn promotion in the Premier League.
The 23 year old joined them on a permanent move this summer for £22 million and has adapted well to life at a higher level with six goals in five appearance for club and country.
Sarri is uncertain about £60 million Alvaro Morata while Olivier Giroud turns 32 at the end of the month. The Serbian could be a long term option for the club with adequate amount of experience in the Premier League
Few other clubs are also interested in him but they are the favourites to land him if he decides to leave.
