The Serbian striker has five goals for Newcastle this season but is not first choice striker for Rafael Benitez, and he could be offered a way out


West Ham and Crystal Palace have made Aleksandar Mitrovic a key transfer target for the January window, according to the Daily Express.

The Serbian striker has scored five goals this season, but remains second choice behind Dwight Gayle at Newcastle.

Rafael Benitez has no plans to sell the 22-year-old, but a bid matching the £14.5 million Newcastle paid Anderlecht might tempt them, while a return to the Premier League might be enough to persuade the player to make the move.
