Arsenal and Liverpool are locked in a six-way battle with several European clubs to sign Olympiakos ace Konstantinos Mitroglou, according to sources in Greece.

The 25-year-old, who scored twice in Greece’s 3-1 World Cup Qualifying play-off win against Romania last week, has been in scintillating form for Olympiakos this term, striking 17 times in just 14 league and European outings.

Scouts from across Europe have been flocking to watch him in action this season and Arsenal and Liverpool are believed to be among his current suitors.

Valued at around £7m, Mitroglou is also being chased by Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan, Genoa and Benfica.
