The 25-year-old Olympiakos forward has already bagged an impressive 21 goals this season, including a Champions League hat-trick against Anderlecht.

That form has reportedly caught the eye of Arsene Wenger as he looks to beef up his attacking options in a  bid to keep Arsenal’s title challenge on track.

Having had only Olivier Giroud to count on as a first-rate striker this season, although Lukas Podolski is nearing a return from injury, the Gunners could do with added firepower.

Wenger is not likely to have a clear run at his target, with Liverpool also keeping tabs, according to The Star.

With Mitroglou possibly available for less than £8million, Olympiakos are expecting offers and boss Jose Miguel Michel said: ‘If he keeps on doing well, it will be hard to keep him.

‘We’ve known for some time that there has been interest from many clubs, but that’s only logical considering how well he has been doing lately.’
