Chelsea are considering making a £15m move for Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic. 

The striker has attracted interest from a number of European clubs this season after some superb performance in the Belgian league and in the early rounds of the Champions League.

Mitrovic, who has scored 20 goals in total this season, including strikes against Arsenal, is available for transfer, however, with Anderlecht keen to cash in on their prized asset.

The Serbian international joined Anderlecht in 2013 from Partizan Belgrade for £3.5m but his transfer fee has now been increased to £15m, which Chelsea are seemingly happy to pay.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho is keen to improve his attacking options and replace outgoing Loic Remy, who has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs.

Newcastle United have also been linked to Mitrovic, however, that interest seems to have died down after Steve McClaren was installed as boss.
