Deep down, although I’d love to be wrong, I’ve resigned myself to the fact that this summer, our first-choice striker, Aleksandar Mitrovic, will be leaving us.
The 24-year-old has, in my opinion, every right to want to continue playing in the top-flight of English football.
It just remains who decides to make Fulham the kind of offer they can’t refuse.
But, with it being certain the striker will leave, perhaps we should be keeping an eye out on who Fulham might bring to Craven Cottage to replace the Serbian.
Two names put forward by the local media source, the Evening Standard, could prove to be interesting.
Our referenced source is of the opinion that Fulham are looking to acquire the services of either Dwight Gayle or Britt Assombalonga.
Gayle, the more experienced at 28-years-of-age, has spent this season on loan, from Newcastle, at West Bromwich Albion, where he showed he has the ability to score enough goals to push a team towards a promotion spot.
Assombalonga, younger at 26-years-of-age, is on the books of Nottingham Forest and has also shown that, at Championship level, he can score goals.
Backed into a corner, I’d opt for Dwight Gayle as my choice, I just have this gut feeling he’d fit into our starting eleven well and his predatory instincts, in front of goal, make him the ideal candidate.
But, do you concur with my choice?
