Portuguese giants Benfica are set to activate the purchase option for Fulham striker Kostas Mitroglou, A Bola can reveal.
The Eagles signed the Greece international last summer on a season long loan worth €800,000, while also including a €7 million buy-out clause.
And with Mitroglou having been in excellent form this season, it is hardly surprising that Benfica have decided to keep hold of his services.
The Eagles will wrap up the deal in the coming days and they are expected to pay the transfer fee in instalments until 2018.
Mitroglou has also agreed to a salary cut, seeing that he will be earning €1.8 million per season instead of the €2.3 million he was pocketing at Fulham.
The 28-year-old established a very good attacking partnership with Brazilian Jonas, going on to score 19 goals in 31 league appearances, while netting two times in the Champions League campaign.
