Aleksandar Mitrovic would be the perfect successor to Diego Costa and Didier Drogba at Chelsea, according to Jamie Redknapp.
The Fulham striker, 24, scored again as his side salvaged a draw against high-flying Watford on Saturday, while the Blues struggled.
Now Redknapp believes the reformed Serbian star could be the solution for West London rivals Chelsea.

After Mitrovic’s weekend performance, Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail: “He was brilliant leading the line for Fulham against Watford.
“Gone is the loose cannon who looked like a walking red card when he was at Newcastle.
“He has done a lot of growing up in the last three years. Mitrovic is as strong as an ox, brings people into play and is using his aggression in the right way.
“He has five goals already this season and I believe he could play for one of the top Premier League clubs.
“Fulham fans won’t thank me for saying this but he would be a perfect fit for Chelsea.
“Mitrovic is more physical than Alvaro Morata and has more pace than Olivier Giroud.
“As a successor to Didier Drogba and Diego Costa, Mitrovic could fit the bill.”
