Newcastle United striker Alexandar Mitrovic has emerged as a target for relegation rivals West Bromwich Albion, reports Sports Mole.

The Serbian has yet to start a Premier League game this season for Rafael Benitez’s side, despite the Spaniard’s two first choice strikers struggling to find the net.

Dwight Gayle and Joselu, who are both preferred to Mitrovic up top, have managed to find the net only six times between them all season, scoring three a piece.

Amidst his lack of playing time, a number of top flight clubs including Brighton and West Ham have been heavily linked with a move for Mitrovic, and now West Brom are the latest to join the growing list of the 23-year-old’s potential suitors.

Baggies manager Alan Pardew, formerly boss of Newcastle between 2010 and 2014, is reportedly keen on bringing Mitrovic to The Hawthorns as he looks to bring in firepower to navigate his side away from the Premier League’s relegation zones.
