Konstantinos "Kostas" Mitroglou (Greek: Κωνσταντίνος "Κώστας" Μήτρογλου born 12 March 1988) is a Greek professional footballer who plays as a striker for Super League Greece club Aris. He is nicknamed "Mitrogoal" and "Pistolero" by fans due to his goalscoring abilities.

Raised in Germany, Mitroglou started his career at Borussia Mönchengladbach, where he established himself as an excellent prospect. He was signed by Olympiacos in the summer of 2007 and had two loan spells at Panionios and Atromitos before establishing himself in the team. He transferred to Premier League club Fulham in 2013 for a club record £12 million, and they were relegated in his only season, in which he was troubled by injury. He then returned to Olympiacos on loan and then to Benfica in Portugal, before joining the latter on a permanent basis in 2016. With Benfica, he would win five major honours, including back-to-back league titles, and set his single-season scoring record with 27 goals.

A full international since 2009, Mitroglou has earned over 60 caps for the Greece national team. He was selected in their squads for UEFA Euro 2012 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
