Chelsea are reportedly targeting Fulham forward Aleksandar Mitrovic after his impressive start to the season.
The Serbian striker is being eyed as a potential solution to the Blues central attacking problems as Alvaro Morata’s form is yet to pick up under Maurizio Sarri.
Morata has scored just once so far this season and dropped to the bench for Chelsea’s win over Cardiff on Saturday.
His replacement, Olivier Giroud, is also yet to find the net, while Mitrovic has already scored four times for Fulham in the first five Premier League matches.
According to the Mirror, he is therefore now emerging as a potential target for Maurizio Sarri’s side.

The 24-year-old also scored 12 goals in 15 appearances while on loan with the Cottagers in the second half of last season to help them secure Premier League promotion.
In the summer, Fulham made his move permanent for £22m, though if he keeps up his current form, that price will rise significantly.
