Fulham’s record signing at the exit door

Greek international Kostas Mitroglou is finally set to leave Craven Cottage on a permanent basis following his turbulent time at the Championship club.

Arriving from Greek Champions Olympiacos in last season’s January transfer window, The Cottagers paid a club-record fee of £12 million for the striker.

To say Mitroglou hasn’t repaid this fee to the Whites is a bit of an understatement; he has played just three games for Fulham and failed to net on each occasion.

At the start of the 2014-15 season the 27 year-old was sent on loan back to his native Greece and his previous club Olympiacos.

Showing the form which made Fulham spend so big on him, Mitroglou has scored 19 goals in 32 games this season, helping his team record back-to-back Greece Superleague titles.

However, his permanent buyer is not likely to be the Greek giants as they cannot afford the price tag the attacker has; instead it seems as if Turkish side Fenerbache are the leading club for his signature.

Fenerbache have no doubt been impressed with the goal-scoring exploits of Mitroglou this season and see him as someone who could aid in their title ambitions in Turkey.

A further stipulation to the deal would be the presence of Emmanuel Emenike as part exchange, as the striker scored just four goals in 27 appearances this term – meaning he is surplus to requirements at the Turkish club.
