Mitroglou talks continue

Sky Sports understands that discussions are continuing between Fulham and Olympiakos over Kostas Mitroglou.

Fulham opened talks with Olympiakos earlier this week and now they appear to be closing on a deal which could be worth around 12.5million - which would represent a club record.

Olympiakos are in action on Wednesday as they have a Greek Cup quarter-final clash with Atromitos - but sources in Greece say Mitroglou will not be involved as he is set to travel to London for a medical.

Mitroglou has been in wonderful form for Olympiakos this season with 17 goals in 19 games, which had seen him linked with some of Europe's biggest clubs - but now it appears Fulham are hopeful of securing what would be a major coup.
