Aleksandar Mitrovic 'tells Fulham he wants to leave' with Saudi side Al-Hilal making £25.5m bid for striker | The Sun

ALEKSANDAR MITROVIC wants to leave Fulham for Al-Hilal, according to reports.

The Saudi Pro League side have had a £25.5million bid for the Serbian striker rejected.

Mitrovic bagged 14 goals in 24 Premier League appearances last season.

According to Sky Sports, the 28-year-old is eager to leave Craven Cottage in order to move to Saudi Arabia this summer.

Fulham have turned down the £25.5m offer and insist that their star striker is not for sale.

Al-Hilal are looking to make Mitrovic their latest high-profile signing.

Their £25.5m bid for the Premier League star follows their acquisitions of Ruben Neves and Kalidou Koulibaly.

While Chelsea flop Koulibaly joined for £17m from the Blues.

Mitrovic signed for Fulham, initially on loan, from Newcastle in 2018.

He has twice helped them achieve promotion to the Premier League – even setting a Championship goalscoring record the second time around.

The 6ft 2in ace scored an astonishing 43 goals in 44 games during the 2021-22 campaign – more than any other Championship player has ever managed in a single season.

In total, Mitrovic has netted 111 goals in 205 games for the Cottagers.

He also has an impressive record for his country – scoring 52 goals in 81 caps – including two efforts at last year's World Cup.

Mitrovic only managed 24 Prem appearances last term, largely due to the eight-match ban he received in April following his head loss against Manchester United in the FA Cup.

Reports in Italy claim that Al-Hilal are also on the brink of signing Mitrovic's international team-mate Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The midfielder is set to join Neves, Koulibaly and Co from Lazio in a £34m deal.
