I don’t think he’s that bad, he absolutely terrorised our back four at Craven Cottage the other week and he is an improvement on what we have got 

Would prefer Wilson though

He’ll cost £50m and there’s no way we should even contemplate that.

If he comes in and another striker with a different style to him comes as well then I’ll be happy. If it’s just him I’m not so sure. I do like the aggression in his play.

Think he’s much better than some are saying on here. Seems most haven’t watched him much.

But your right, at that price we shouldn’t be anywhere near it. A -20m fee and sure. Anything over and no thanks.

If he's only £20m then he's worth a punt as you'd definitely get your money back on him. You're lucky to get a squad player for that these days for £20 mil, Solanke went for that much and he's unproven and in his limited minutes looks nowhere near Mitrovic.

Completely agree. I think he’s much better than Solanke, seems to be the going rate now.

yep that's what i was saying too, to get a decent player nowadays it's 40-50m you have to spend.  could be a shrewd signing at 20-25

I really like him and think he’d thrive off the service from Digne, Sigurdsson, etc. BUT a lot of our recent success has come from Calvert-Lewin’s work rate and ability to press - can Mitrovic do this? Not sure he’s what our team need but he’s certainly a very good striker and, at his age, around £25m he’d be a decent signing.

There is a more focused reliance on players like mitrovic, DCL, Llorente, firminio .....  for the reasons I said 4 years ago as to why I would have preferred firminio to lukaku.  The ability of a team to attack and sustain attacks and retain and win possession is easier with these so-called "non prolific" players.

Mitrovic looks like he can finish.  There aren't many of his type about.... troy deeney was kinda doing this role a few years back but has slowed up and is nowhere near the athlete that DCL or Mitrovic is.

I've always thought he's a bit lazy and prone to spitting his dummy out if things don't go his way( hhhmmm remind you of anyone else who played for us recently?) , not sure if he's the right fit for us.

Big Dunc is who he reminds me most of. A nightmare for defenders, great in the air, physical, hot headed - often takes it too far but has the ability to do something magical with the ball at his feet. As I said previously, he’ll be a good signing for someone, and I’d be happy if it’s us, but maybe not the type of striker that would compliment our system best.

I ilke Mitrovic and have always felt that there is a player in there.  Hasn't unlocked it yet at Toon or Fulham, so problem is that we can't afford yet another passenger up front next year, so its a pass from me.

wouldn't mind it one bit having him join up. strong hold up striker who can play with his back to goal and a pretty natural finisher as well. definitely offers something different from DCL, much more of a natural #9.

That’s what I mean nowadays theres not many left. I think you have to be versatile. I’d much rather invest in a speedy striker. DCL can hold the ball up now and is getting better all the time. We get a left footer to compete with Bernie on the left and a fast striker that would do for me

Cos he was a natural goal scorer. Scored all types of goals 

Absolutely, strong and clever too. But was the laziest player I’ve ever seen, he’d never keep up with our attacking players!

London press reporting fee has been set at £30 million 

I'd be very happy with that.

Have a look around the top teams now.... fox in the box type players area luxury that even the likes of city will not tolerate, aguero had to change his game to stay.  Liverpool massively rely on firminhos industry.  Spurs plugged the loss of Kane by having Llorrente doing unselfish work bringing the attacking midfielders in.

Mitrovic reminds me a bit of shearer, not finishing wise but back to goal - but he does look like he has more a clinical side to him than DCL. 

We probably offer him the most appealing option available.  However it would not surprise me if west ham rear their heads and make a play based on location.

If it comes down to a choice between Mitrovic and Welbeck it would be Mitrovic everyday for me, Welbeck would spend more time in the injury room than on the pitch. 

Mitrovic would play a similar role as DCL but would be a more clinical finisher imo, but I wouldn’t give up on DCL he needs to stop choking in front of goal not easy I know but everything else is top notch.

This for me too.  Also age and sell on value are in mitrovic favor
