In-form Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic reportedly emerges as a possible transfer target for West London rivals Chelsea.

Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has reportedly emerged as a target for West London rivals Chelsea.

Mitrovic has scored four goals in his opening five Premier League games for the newly-promoted Cottagers following his £22m summer arrival from Newcastle United.

No player in England's top two tiers has scored more goals than Mitrovic since he made his debut for Fulham while initially on loan in February, and that form has allegedly drawn the attention of Chelsea.

The Mirror reports that Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has earmarked the 23-year-old as a potential transfer target due to lingering uncertainties about Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.

The Blues could face competition for his signature from a couple of unnamed Italian clubs, however.

Only Eden Hazard has scored more goals than Mitrovic in the Premier League so far this season.
