Arsenal are reportedly monitoring Konstantinos Mitroglou’s situation at Benfica. The player is currently on loan from Fulham and he’s expected to sign a permanent deal with the Portuguese side next summer.
According to A Bola, Mitroglou has already reached a verbal agreement to sign a four-year deal at Benfica. The club will pay Fulham €7m for the transfer and only a very good offer would make the player change his mind.
However, the newspaper says that Arsenal are alert to Mitroglou’s recent form and have already asked Fulham the negotiation terms. No bids have been made yet by Arsenal, and things don't appear to have gone further.
The Greek striker turned down an offer from China in January, and A Bola says it’s his desire to stay at Benfica... but of course Arsenal could be that 'big offer' he's hanging on for.
Mitroglou is having the best season of his career so far, with 21 goals in 38 games but Arsenal fans probably still wouldn't be impressed if the interest is real. Failing at Fulham is never a great way to become much wanted by Arsenal fans.
