Chelsea 27-goal target set for Newcastle medical after £13m agreement

Anderlecht star Aleksandar Mitrovic, who is a target for Chelsea, is set to undergo a medical with Newcastle United on Monday, according to reports from Sky Sports.

Mitrovic has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks, with the Blues and Manchester United also previously keen on the 20-year-old.

However, it is Newcastle who are closing in on his signature after Mitrovic’s agents reached a £13million agreement with the Tyneside club last week.

The striker made an impression during the Champions League group stages with Anderlect last season, scoring against Borussia Dortmund and the equalizer against Arsenal after being 3-0 down.

His switch to St. James’ Park will be a big blow to the likes of FC Porto and AS Roma, with both clubs also interested in the former Partizan Belgrade star.

Despite his young age, Mitrovic bagged 27 goals in all competitions during the previous campaign, supplying an additional five assists.
