Arsenal & Liverpool to battle for prolific striker

Kostas Mitroglou

There are some interesting reports in the Football Transfer Tavern today from the Daily Star who report that Liverpool and Arsenal are involved in a three-way transfer fight with Borussia Dortmund to sign Olympiacos striker Kostas Mitroglou.

The Greek international striker has been making waves this term after striking a highly-impressive 14 goals in his 14 games this season and punters have placed him on the list of players to watch in Europe this season.

His fine form has now alerted a host of top European sides, with Borussia Dortmund at the front of the queue for the 25-year-old along with Premier League sides Liverpool and Arsenal who are monitoring the situation with a view to a possible January bid.

Our expert on the Greek league believes that he is likely to be available for around £7million and explains that the striker made international headlines after he was reprimanded for pretending to shoot opposition fans last season. As punter quips he now seems to have been firing in goals instead.

Dortmund are looking at the Greek star as they seek a top-quality replacement for the soon to be out of contract Robert Lewandowski.

Liverpool are believed to be on the lookout for another striker to support current front-two Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, with Mitroglou seen a a relatively cheap option while Arsene Wenger also seek a forward ahead of a possible Premier League title tilt.

With an upcoming play-off against Romania to decide whether his country make the trip to Brazil next summer, the striker may be eager to make a high-profile switch this winter.
