Championship striker set to snub Arsenal for European giants



Fulham striker Kostas Mitroglou has snubbed a move to Premier League club Arsenal for a permanent deal at Benfica, according to Goal.


The Greek signed for the Cottagers in a club record deal, believed at the time to be somewhere in the region of £11 million, back in January 2014 from Olympiacos, but made just three appearances for the club before going back to his former club on loan for the season.

He is also spending this season on loan at Benfica, where he has 18 goals in his 29 appearances, and the latest rumours are suggesting the Portuguese champions want to sign him permanently.

It is believed that he has verbally agreed to take a major pay cut to join the club, and that he does not want to join Arsenal, who have him on a list of strikers they may want to sign in the summer.

Fulham are also happy to let him move to Portugal full time, should they match his £5.4 million buy out clause.

The Cottagers have endured an incredibly poor season, with the club languishing in the bottom half of the table, only being saved by the goals of Moussa Dembele and Ross McCormack.

Fulham fans, what do you think? Would you be glad to see the back of Mitroglou? Let us know below!
