HITC Sport understands that Rafa Benitez is ready to sanction the deal as he is not sure if he would be suited to the Championship following their relegation and he feels Serbian Aleksandar Mitrovic is the perfect man to lead his forward line.

He impressed during his two-years in the top-flight and he is set to remain in England.
Tottenham Hotspur are leading the chase as they see him as an ideal fit for their squad, given that he can pay across the forward line – but they will face some real competition for his signature with Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton all registering an interest.
