West Ham have been installed as evens favourites with one bookmaker to complete a move for Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic this summer.

The Hammers have been linked with the frontman heavily in recent days after it emerged the club could be priced out of a move for their number one target during the transfer window, Maxi Gomez.


London understands that Mitrovic is on the list of wanted strikers Manuel Pellegrini has put together this summer to potentially bring to east London alongside Salomon Rondon, Moussa Marega and Gomez.

Now, bookmakers BetVictor have priced up the Hammers at evens to swoop for the Serbian striker, who is expected to leave Craven Cottage this summer after their relegation to the Championship.

Mitrovic joined Fulham initially on-loan from Newcastle United in January 2017 and scored 12 goals in the final six months of the season to fire Slavisa Jokanovic's side to promotion to the Premier League.

He then joined the club permanently from Newcaslte United for a reported fee of £22m.

He scored 11 goals in the Premier League last season but it wasn't enough to keep Fulham in the Premier League who dispensed wth the services of Jokanovic and Claudio Ranieri as manager during the campaign before appointing Scott Parker.

The Hammers are in the market for at least one striker, if not two, this summer as they are expected to allow Javier Hernandez and Lucas Perez to leave the club if they receive the right offer.

Another frontman in Andy Carroll is set to be released once his contract comes to an end on July 1.
