Kostas Mitroglou: Looks Like He's Turning Down Arsenal For Fulham

Mitroglou en route to London?

Rumour has it that one of Europe's most-wanted strikers could be on his way to the Premier League, more precisely he could be moving to the capital, but to who?

Arsenal? No. Chelsea? No Spurs? No. Fulham? Jesus, it's Fulham. No, really.

According to the Daily Mirror, Greek forward Kostas Mitroglou is 'in talks' with the Cottagers over an £11million switch. 

'Pistolero', as he's been nicknamed by the Olympiacos faithful, ended last season on 20 goals and has already bagged 17 times this campaign – which seems to be a far too impressive record to be joining an outfit like Fulham (no disrespect - okay, SOME disrespect)

With an ageing (and smoking) Dimitar Berbatov no longer cutting it or caring, Darren Bent being Darren Bent and Clint Dempsey only there for a quick holiday, Fulham are in desperate need of a goalscorer and Big Rene Meulensteen see's the 25-year-old as the man for the job.

Chances are, mind, a relatively decent team will swoop in and sign Mitroglou, but for now at least Fulham fans have a reason to be optimistic.

UPDATE: Deal is done. I'm in shock.
