I'm not a fan of his but I think he'd be a decent 3rd or 4th choice striker option.  He's got a good few years left on his contract so unless we get a great offer for him i'd rather see us keep him for now.  We could end up with a lot worse (See Xisco, Kuqi, Ferrerya, Doumbia, Ranger etc.)

If Lyon really want to buy him and are offering £15m I'd definitely sell him. There has also been talk of Turkish clubs being interested in him.

 

As for replacing him, I'm sure we'd be able to loan at least one striker who is better than Mitrović at putting the ball in the back of the net. In a season leading up to a World Cup there'll be quite a few 2nd, 3rd or 4th choice strikers itching to go out on loan to make sure they get plenty of game time.

 

We could probably still buy a relatively cheap striker who could do a decent job as third choice. A striker in the last year of their contract / a foreign league player where the fees aren't as high. For example, Middlesbrough had Negredo last season. Apparently Fulham agreed a £5m fee with Bordeaux for Diego Rolan before he rejected the move (no idea if he's any good but I don't rate Mitrović as a striker anyway).

 

Most promoted clubs take advantage of the loan system. Obviously NUFC aren't going to be spending a lot so we can probably loan a better standard of player than we can buy at the moment, especially as a newly promoted club.

I'd sell him but we're already low on strikers and the chances are if we do sell him then he'll not be replaced, which makes me lean towards keep.

 

This. If he stays I think we'll have 3 strikers this season, and if he goes we'll have 2

Chances are there'll be a lot of movement right at the end of the transfer window when players realise or are told they won't be a regular starter. I'd imagine if NUFC sell Mitrović it will only be when a replacement has been secured. I'd think if NUFC had got Tammy Abraham on loan Mitrović would have been pushed out already.
