Serie A trio Napoli, Inter Milan and AS Roma are all set to battle it out for Fulham flop Kostas Mitroglou, according to talkSPORT.

The Greek international, who only signed for the Premier League side back in January, has not had the desired effect for the west London side as he could not prevent them from being relegated to England's second-tier for the first time in 12-years.

The Cottagers splashed out £12million on Mitroglou in January, in hope that he could fire them away from the relegation zone, but arriving with a lack of match-fitness meant that he couldn't prevent the side from the drop.

In fact, the Greek striker only played 150 minutes from January to May, and failed to score a single goal for his new club.

Despite the relegation, it's believed that Fulham manager Felix Magath will remain on at Craven Cottage and is keen to sort out the club's first-team by selling a lot of the experienced, and over-paid players.

Magath is keen to blood some of the youngsters at the club, and after they reached the final of the FA Youth Cup, the boss clearly has a lot of talent to work with in the Championship.

With youth on his mind, the former-Bundesliga manager is keen on selling some of the club's current top-earners, and Mitroglou is considered one of them.

In spite of his poor campaign in the Premier League, the former Olympiakos man still has many suitors in European football, with three giants of Italian football all keen on his signature.

The 26-year-old arrived at Fulham with an impressive scoring record for the Greek side, netting 41 times in just 92 appearances, and that could be his saving grace when looking for a potential transfer away from England.

Inter, Napoli and Roma are all said to be keen on signing the Greek, and due to Fulham's relegation and willingness to sell, they could sign the forward for relatively cheap.

It's believed Roma have been interested in Mitroglou for over a month now, but since the relegation, both Inter and Napoli have now declared interest.
