Premier League giants Arsenal are weighing up a possible transfer swoop for Kostas Mitroglou after sending scouts to watch the Fulham flop on loan at Benfica, according to reports in Portugal.
Mirtoglu has joined Fulham in a £12million deal in the January transfer window of 2014, but played just three times for the club, scoring no goals.
Championship side Fulham were relegated at the end of that season and the striker has been forced to rebuild his career with a series of loan spells.
The Greek international star has had a hand in 27 goals domestic and UEFA Champions League action, according to the WhoScored.com.
Gunners scout Lucas Sposito of Sport Witness has detailed just how keen the player is on remaining at Benfica: “According to A Bola, Mitroglou has already reached a verbal agreement to sign a four-year deal at Benfica. The club will pay Fulham €7m for the transfer and only a very good offer would make the player change his mind.”
However, even if Wenger manages to persuade Mitroglou, Arsenal fans may not be delighted to sign him up, as the 28-year-old has already failed to make an impact in England.
