A familiar face could be set to make a surprise return to the Premier League if one news source has its facts correct.

On 31st January 2014, transfer deadline day, Fulham paid Olympiacos approximately £12 million for the services of the Greek striker, Kostas Mitroglou.

The strikers’ career at Craven Cottage was far from illustrious with Mitroglou with the striker failing to score in a Premier League game and after Fulham were relegated, in May of 2014, he was loaned back to Olympiacos before the new season started and was then loaned to Benfica the following season before signing for the Portuguese side on a permanent basis.

Currently, Mitroglou is on the books of the French side Marseille and according to the news source, the Daily Mail, is on the radar of our London rivals, West Ham United, who are looking at taking the striker, now 30-years-of-age, on a loan deal before deciding on whether to make the move a permanent one.

If the deal gets done, we can only hope West Ham United have more luck with the striker than we did.
