Mitrovic scored 12 goals in 17 games on loan at Fulham last season as the Cottagers secured a return to the top flight via the Championship play-offs.

Japan forward Yoshinori Muto is set to join Newcastle United from Mainz after the clubs struck a deal and the player agreed on terms and had a medical, the Premier League team said on Friday.

The deal should pave the way for Aleksandar Mitrovic to move to Fulham, providing the London club can stump up the cash.

"This is a big club and past year we made history, we did big things, and I want to continue this. He has done well in the Bundesliga, so we're talking about a striker that's doing well in the last few years at worldwide level".

After breaking out with Partizan Belgrade in his native Serbia, Mitrovic scored 16 goals from Anderlecht in his debut campaign in Belgium before leading the league with 20 goals in the 2014-15 season.


West Bromwich Albion striker Salomon Rondon is another player of interest to Benitez.

The move comes mere hours after Newcastle announced the signing of Swiss global, Fabian Schär, from Deportivo La Coruña.

But, here at Vital Newcastle United, what do we think of a possible/probable deal?

Newcastle hold the trump cards though as Leicester will not accept a sale of Maguire until a replacement is secured, so they could stand firm.
