Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic will reportedly be the subject of interest from West Ham United and Crystal Palace in the January transfer window.

The 22-year-old has become a fan favourite at St.James Park following his move from Anderlecht in the summer of 2014.

According to The Star, the Premier League duo are keeping tabs on the Serbian international, who has yet to cement a regular role under Rafa Benitez.

Mitrovic has earned just four starts in the Championship this term, and this is something that the pair will look to capitalize on as they seek to add more firepower to their squads.

Serie A giants Napoli have also been credited with interest for the marksman after an early season injury to Arek Milik.

Mitrovic has netted 14 goals in exactly 49 games for Newcastle United.
