Ea­gles con­sider a sum­mer swoop for the Ser­bian striker

The Chronicle - - Nufc -

in­sisted Ful­ham must do ev­ery­thing they can to sign Mitro­vic this sum­mer.

The Cot­tagers were keen to get a quick deal done for the striker but did not have a buy­out clause in his loan ar­range­ment.

He said: “We have to try and sign him. He is a Premier League cen­tre-for­ward.

“He is go­ing to play for Ser­bia in the World Cup and if he scores goals there then more peo­ple are go­ing to be in for him.

“I think he loves it here and he loves the man­ager.”

Cair­ney, once linked with a move to St James’ Park be­fore New­cas­tle were quoted a £20mil­lion fee, now seems set­tled with Ful­ham.

He added: “We are an at­trac­tive club to come to.

“We have been in the Premier League for a long time apart from the last few years, we are in Lon­don and the style of play is at­trac­tive.

“We look to play foot­ball and score goals. We played amaz­ing foot­ball in the Cham­pi­onship but ev­ery­one knows the gap be­tween the two di­vi­sions and the top teams.

“We are not go­ing to go to Ar­se­nal and dom­i­nate the ball like we did at Wem­b­ley. We have to look at what clubs like Bournemouth have done.”

“They dom­i­nated pos­ses­sion in the Cham­pi­onship when they went up and scored a lot of goals like us.

“They look to do that against teams at home in the Premier League but when they go away to the likes of Chelsea they drop off and keep their shape.”
