Fulham have only just got shot of their flop striker Kostas Mitroglou – but it seems he could be on the move again for a staggering price.

A Bola in Portugal is reporting that VfL Wolfsburg want to take the Greek international to the Bundesliga this summer, despite the fact he only recently completed his permanent move to Benfica.

But they claim Wolfsburg would need to pay a staggering release clause for the player of around €45 million (£38 million).

It is a price-tag that will simply astound Fulham fans, who never got to see the best of the striker during his time at Craven Cottage.

In January 2013 Fulham won the transfer battle to sign the Greek international striker, in an attempt to survive relegation from the Premier League.

However, Fulham boss Felix Magath was not a fan of the player and Mitroglou played just three times for the club.

When Fulham signed the Greek international a little over two years ago he cost them £12 million, according to ESPN, and they took a financial hit when he departed the club.

But he scored 22 goals in 43 appearances for Benfica last term and it appears that his value is now on the up once again.
