Southampton are planning a £30 million summer move for Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is planning a major revamp of his squad after steering them to Premier League safety this season – and big, aggressive goalscoring centre forward is one of his targets.
Mitrovic has netted 11 goals this season in a struggling team as Fulham were relegated from the Premier League, and the Serb, despite the prospect of a new deal being offered by the club, looks set to leave Craven Cottage, with West Ham also interested, as well as several Chinese Super League clubs.
The £30m fee the Cottagers have placed on the striker may though prove a stumbling block for some clubs.
Crystal Palace are also understood to be monitoring his situation.
