Report: Everton join race to sign £60,000-a-week Premier League striker

Alex Mitrovic

Everton have joined the race to sign Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, according to Serbian news publication Zurnal.

The Toffees have joined the likes of Southampton, Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to land the 24-year-old in the summer.

The Fulham attacker, who is on the £60,000-a-week at Craven Cottage (Spotrac), has impressed for the west London outfit since joining them from Newcastle United on a permanent deal last summer.

With Everton looking for a top-six finish next season, the signing of Mitrovic would be a very good way in which to start off their summer business.

Mitrovic has netted 10 goals from 34 appearances in all competitions this term, and he could do even better if surrounded by superior players at Goodison Park.

The Toffees currently have Dominic Calvert-Lewin as their first-choice central striker, but the the 47-cap Serbia international would be any upgrade on the 22-year-old, and he could very well go on to become a real hit at Everton.
