Fulham have agreed a fee with Olympiakos for the purchase of Greek striker Kostas Mitroglou, according to Sky Sports.
In one of the most eyebrow-raising transfer rumours this month the Cottagers have been heavily linked with the free-scoring 25-year-old who has also been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool and it now appears that they have met at a fee of £12.5million.
Mitroglou, who has 28 caps for his native Greece, has netted 17 times in 19 games for Olympiakos this season and his goals could well help to steer Fulham clear of the relegation zone.
Following their 2-0 loss to Swansea this week Rene Meulensteen’s squad sit 19th in the Premier League, only one point above Cardiff City who are bottom, and work needs to be done to ensure that they don’t fall out of contention with those above them.
If Fulham do manage to entice Mitroglou to west London then it may open to door for Dimitar Berbatov to depart, which will no doubt be of interest to Tottenham and Arsenal, who have both been named in connection with the Bulgarian.
