Chelsea are reportedly lining up a bid for Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.
The Serbian forward only sealed a permanent move to Craven Cottage in the summer, having starred on loan from Newcastle last season.
He has four goals in his opening five Premier League games for the Whites and, according to the Mirror, his performances have caught the eye of the Blues.
Olivier Giroud took his place and impressed, but the Frenchman turns 32 at the end of the month.
Chelsea are understood to be monitoring Mitrovic as a potential long-term solution up top.

Mitrovic was a £13m signing for Newcastle in 2015 but struggled to show his best form at St James’ Park.
He scored just 17 times in 72 appearances for the club and was loaned to Fulham in the Championship in February.
Mitrovic proved to be a big hit for the Cottagers, netting 12 times in 17 games to help lead them back into the Premier League.
