Italian Serie A side Inter Milan are plotting a summer swoop for Fulham duo Kostas Mitroglou and Alexander Kaciniklic according to Italian newspaper Tuttosport.
The Italian giants are planning this surprising swoop to land the Fulham duo in the summer to bulk up their squad for European competition.
Kostas Mitroglou has been a Fulham flop since joining in January for a club record fee of £12 million from Olympiakos and it is likely that he would be available for nearly half of what they paid for him as a result of their relegation from the Premier League. The Greek international has recently been called up to the World Cup squad and despite being 26, he has vast experience in the Champions League.
Mitroglou is among a shortlist of five strikers including Edin Dzeko and Fernando Torres but it seems the Greek may be the cheapest option. The 26-year old has proven to be a prolific goalscorer when played but he just never seemed to get the opportunity at Fulham to prove this.
Swedish winger Alexander Kaciniklic has been at Fulham since joining from Liverpool in 2012. He was once a first team player at the club under Martin Jol but during this past season he has fallen out of favour. It seems that Inter see the talent the former Liverpool trainee possesses and they want to show it and are planning to bid for him in the summer.
During his playing stint under Jol, he showed some real promise and some terrific ability but injury cut-short his chances and loan spells at Watford and Burnley followed.
Both players are likely to be available on a cut-price deal as a result of Fulham’s relegation into the Sky Bet Championship and the club will be looking for the best financial deal for themselves.
