Real Betis ahead of West Ham in race for Fulham striker Mitrovic

West Ham face being trumped by Real Betis for Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Mirror says Mitrovic is on the verge of a move to Real Betis, who look set to beat West Ham to his signature.

Mitrovic is on Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini's wish list if the club fail to land top target Maxi Gomez from Celta Vigo.

But Betis have stolen a march on them, with vice president Jose Miguel Lopez Catalan in London for talks with the Cottagers.

Fulham want £30m for Mitrovic, who has four years left on his contract and scored 11 Premier League goals last season.

But while the Spanish side are trying to do a deal for closer to £22m, the two sides are understood to be close to a compromise.
