Pierre Issa, the current sports director of Greek side Olympiacos, during a press conference stated that Kostas Mitroglou is not going anywhere.

The young striker has had a stellar season so far scoring 14 goals in eight starts.

That form has attracted the attention of some of the top class clubs in Europe such as Arsenal, Liverpool, Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund.

According to reports Liverpool are lining up a January bid for the striker while Erick Thohir, the new owner of Inter Milan, is considered more than willing to submit a bid of around €8m.

Issa tried to calm Olympiacos fans, who are already extremely worried about their team being weakened.

Issa told Sport24: "He enjoys what he does, he enjoys playing and scoring goals. He is paying back the faith we showed. We want to keep him in our team for as long as possible."

Mitroglou plays has played a crucial part in Olympiacos' assent to the top of the table so far and the club would find it very hard to replace him should he depart in January.

On the other hand a bid around £8-10m would be very difficult to turn down.

Additionally Mitroglou himself would no doubt prefer a move to a bigger club no matter how much he loves Olympiacos. 

To sum up, Mitroglou is almost definitely going to depart from Olympiacos and Karaiskakis stadium at some point in the near future.

The issue should be about where he will sign and not whether he would be allowed a transfer move. It would a shame not letting him make the next step in his career on Olympiacos' behalf.
