Arsenal have received a major boost in the search for a new striker to join the club and help take the pressure off Olivier Giroud. The Gunners have been linked with a January deal for Greece’s hot striker Kostas Mitroglou and Olympiakos manager Jose Miguel Michel confessed that the club may have to sell the striker.
Mitroglou has developed into one of Europe’s most sought after forwards in recent months following an impressive start to the season for both club and country.
Although Olympiakos want to keep their most prized player, Michel has admitted that the club may struggle to keep him out of the grasps of bigger sides:
“We’ve known for some time that there has been interest from many clubs.” He is quoted by The Express.
“But that’s only logical considering how well he has been doing lately.
“There have been no concrete proposals so far, but if he keeps on doing well, it’s going to be hard to keep him.”
Mitroglou is valued at around £7million which would be a very good deal for Arsenal considering that he is still 25-years old.
