Fulham have rejected a £25m bid from Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal for Serbia striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The 28-year-old, who joined Fulham from Newcastle for a reported £22m in 2018, has three years left on his contract.

BBC says they dismissed the offer out of hand as they have no desire to sell Mitrovic.

Al-Hilal have signed Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly and Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves this summer.

Mitrovic scored 14 Premier League goals last season as Fulham finished 10th on their return to the top flight.

He broke the Championship scoring record with 43 goals in 44 games during their promotion-winning season in 2021-22.
