Former Liverpool forward John Aldridge has backed the team to secure services of Fulham forward Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Aldridge has reported that Mitrovic could be a great option off the bench for Liverpool when they need a plan B in games.

The Merseyside Reds beat Fulham 2-0 last weekend, with Serbian forward having a goal controversially ruled out for offside.

The 25-year-old has found back of the net five times in the English top-tier in 12 appearances this campaign, after scoring 12 in 17 in the Championship last term for the Cottagers.

He spent the second half of last campaign on loan to Fulham who have a new boss Claudio Ranieri, before completing a £27m move from the Magpies in the summer.

Aldridge wrote this about Mitrovic in The Liverpool Echo:

“I was also impressed with Aleksandar Mitrovic. He’s the type of player you’d want coming off the bench, he’s big, strong and scores goals.

“He gives you something that little bit different and I like him as a squad player.

“The way Liverpool play they could do with someone who provides a bit of diversity and a Plan B.”

Mitrovic has also scored 21 goals in 44 caps for Serbia, with 10 in 11 games during 2018.
