Transfer news: Fulham reportedly closing in on Kostas Mitroglou
Olympiakos striker has been in good form this season
Wednesday 29 January 2014
Fulham are close to completing the £11 million signing of Olympiakos striker Kostas Mitroglou, according to reports.
The 25-year-old has been impressive form this season, leading the Greek scoring table with 14 goals, and is thought to have been offered a lucrative four-year deal by the London club.
Mitroglou's goals have helped propel Olympiakos into the last-16 of the Champions League, where they will face Manchester United.
Meanwhile Fulham appear to have won the battle to hang onto Dimitar Berbatov and continue to have an interest in West Ham's Ravel Morrison.
The Hammers however are holding out for £10m for the midfielder.
Rene Meulensteen has also confirmed that the club have submitted a bid for Swansea left back Neil Taylor but there have been no further updates on that deal.
