Gunners plan Mitroglou move

Arsenal are thought to be considering a summer bid for Fulham striker Kostas Mitroglou. The 28-year-old is currently plying his trade on a season-long loan at Benfica.

The Greece international joined the Cottagers from Olympiakos during the 2013-14 season when they were relegated from the Premier League.

Since then, Mitroglou has been on loan contracts at former club Olympiakos and Primeira Liga holders Benfica.

Portuguese daily A Bola claims the Gunners have been monitoring the player's excellent run at Benfica and could launch a summer offer for his signature.

Nevertheless, Benfica are leading the queue after they placed £7.5m buy-out clause in the player's contract.

Mitroglou has netted 22 goals in all competitions for Águias this term.
