Report: Leicester City eyeing summer move for Kostas Mitroglou

Leicester are scouting out-on-loan Fulham striker Kostas Mitroglou.

Leicester are reportedly keen on signing Kostas Mitroglou this summer, O Jogo reports.

The 27-year-old striker is currently on loan at Benfica from Championship side Fulham, and has scored 17 goals in 32 games this season.

The Greek international made his name with Olympiacos, scoring 81 goals in 183 games for the club, impressing in the Champions League and on the international stage.

His form with Olympiacos earned him a big money move to England, transferring to Fulham in January 2014, with the West London club facing relegation from the Premier League.

Mitroglou was meant to be their main chance of survival, but he struggled to adapt to English football, and he managed just three games that season - as Fulham were relegated.

He has not appeared for the club since then, rejoining Olympiacos on loan last season, and heading to Benfica for this campaign.

Due to his impressive form in Portugal, Leicester have been keeping tabs on the striker, scouting Mitroglou for the season.

They are considering making a move for the striker this summer, with Claudio Ranieri keen to add players with Champions League experience to his squad ahead of next campaign, and the likely European adventures Leicester will be going on.
