Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is set to hit the jackpot with a lucrative move to China after the Cottagers were relegated from the Premier League.

The Serb is being offered £300,000 a week to move to the Chinese Super League with Guangzhou Evergrande leading the chase to sign him.

They are willing to match the £50 million asking price which is double what the West London side paid Newcastle United to sign him after he impressed on loan.

Mitrovic has been one of the few bright spots in a disappointing season for Fulham who will drop out of the top flight at the end of the season.

He has got plenty of interest from the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur, Leicester City, West Ham United, Southampton and Everton all keen on signing him.

But they are struggling to compete with the huge wages that he is being offered to move to China as well as Fulham’s staggering asking price.

Mitrovic fired Slavisa Jokanovic’s side to promotion last season after joining on loan in January 2018.

The 24-year-old scored 12 times in 17 Championship appearances before helping Fulham to a 1-0 win over Aston Villa at Wembley.

His form this season has been inconsistent, but his finishing ability will attract several suitors.

The Serbian scored six goals in his first six Premier League appearances for Fulham, but is now on a run of eight games without a goal.
