Fulham set for Aleksandr Mitrovic conundrum in January as suitors eye up goal machine The Cottagers' Serbian striker is on course to smash the Championship goal record to smithereens after notching again last weekend to take his tally to 21 goals in 18 games

There is probably not a striker on the planet in as rich a vein of form as Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Fulham forward scored on Saturday in his team's 4-1 thumping of Barnsley as they went to the top of the Championship table.

Remarkably that was the Serbian's 21st league goal of the campaign.

He's now scored in their last seven outings and it seems only a matter of when, not if, he breaks the second tier's goal record since its re-branding in 2004-05.

Brentford's Ivan Toney holds that particular record after notching 31 times last season. But Mitrovic is on course to overtake that by early next year if he continues in the same run of form.

Reports earlier this month suggested that the 27-year-old penned a new five-year deal with Fulham that sees him rake in £100,000 per week - the highest salary in Championship history.

But with the January transfer window fast approaching there could be plenty of interest in him.

Fresh reports coming out of Spain suggest that Unai Emery's Villarreal are looking into a potential move for the striker.

A fee of €16million is being mooted although it is unclear whether Fulham would even entertain the possibility of selling their star asset, particularly midway through a campaign where they are looking a good bet for automatic promotion to the Premier League.
