Everton are looking to sign the Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic this summer.
According to Sky Sports, Silva is keen on improving his attacking options and the Toffees are ‘very interested’ in the Fulham ace.
Fulham do not want to sell their star striker this summer but the player wants to play in the Premier League.
Mitrovic scored 11 goals in the league this past season and despite Fulham’s relegation, he has shown that he is good enough to shine at this level.
It will be interesting to see if the Toffees manage to agree on a few now.
Fulham paid £22m for the striker last summer and they will be looking for a healthy profit if they are forced to sell.
Everton certainly have the resources to pull this off and the fans will be excited to see what happens.
Mitrovic will improve Everton going forward. He is a natural number nine and his arrival will allow the likes of Richarlison to roam and play with more freedom.
Given his ability to hold up the ball and bring others into play, Mitrovic is likely to improve other players around him as well.
The Everton fans have already taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on his potential arrival. Here are some of the reactions.
Personally, I don’t want us to go anywhere near Mitrovic. 11 in 37 league games for a team battling relegation isn’t the worst but I think he is very similar to Cenk. Too immobile and slow.

Silva wants a fast mobile striker, as some have already said Mitrovic is similar to Tosun. If you are not going to play to a strikers strengths then there is no point in buying him! Would be surprised if this was true.

Said this for the last 6 months he would score 20+ for us ?

He’s just the same as Tosun

Good player, lots of positive attributes and I like his aggression but he just doesn’t score enough goals. Not what we need.

Personally not someone who’s high on my list of #9 targets. One I’m aware of, but not one I’d be overly ecstatic for if signed
