Chelsea are keeping tabs on Serbian and Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic in January transfer window.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is enjoying a great time so far after seeing his team cruise to yet another victory against Cardiff City.

The current league leaders want to add to the attacking line and Mitrovic appears as their primary target.

Sarri already hhas£60 million signing Alvaro Morata and World Cup winner Olivier Giroud but the possessive style only seems to suite Giroud more than Morata because of his physicality and ability to connect better with other players. However, Giroud is yet to score a goal under Sarri while Morata has scored just one goal.

The Serbian forward could be the 59-year-old first choice because he has the ability to do what the two Chelsea strikers lack; while he has scored more goals than both players this season having registered 4 goals in this campaign.

Chelsea already loaned Tammy Abraham to Aston Villa which many think he would have added more flair in the game ahead.

Mitrovic is playing well under Fulham manager who also has the possessive style as only Chelsea and Manchester City is ahead of Fulham in passes completed so far.

However, it was also reported that some clubs in Seria A are also watching the striker which means Sarri will need to act fast to bring in the goal poacher sooner or rather than later.
