Chelsea to make surprise move for £15m-rated striker


Chelsea are considering whether to step into the race for Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, the Daily Mail reports.

The Blues are one of the clubs linked with the 20-year-old who ended last season as top scorer in the Belgian Pro League.

He has an estimated market transfer value of £15m although Anderlecht general manager Herman van Holsbeeck declared at the start of the month that the club will not sell the player.

"At 20, Mitrovic has scored 20 league goals this season," van Holsbeeck is quoted as saying by TEAMtalk.

"He scored against Arsenal, Dortmund and has also played for Serbia. This is a striker who you know can improve a side.

"Therefore, we have decided against selling him. Mitro is aware and he wants to stay."
