Liverpool’s hopes of securing a January deal for Kostas Mitroglou have been given a boost, after Olympiakos manager Jose Miguel Michel confessed that the club may have to sell the striker.
The Greek international 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.
His razor-sharp displays have alerted both Arsenal and Liverpool, with the Premier League’s top two keen to agree deals for the 25-year-old in the New Year.
Although Olympiakos want to keep their talismanic goal-getter, 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 £7m, which has alerted a number of top sides.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is thought to see him as a good alternative to the in-form Olivier Giroud, while Reds chief Brendan Rodgers is keen to draft in some support for Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez.
