Fulham boss Kit Symons is prepared to handle the return of want-away stars in much the same way he dealt with Bryan Ruiz.
The Dutch keeper has been returned to the club after Monaco rejected the chance to make his loan deal permanent.
Mitroglou was a record £12 million buy from Olympiakos as Fulham ran out of options to save their bacon in January last year.
The gamble failed, with the Greek international largely unavailable and shipped back to the club that sold him at the end of the season.
Turkish giants Besiktas are interested, but along with Stekelenburg, Symons may have no choice but to include the duo in his early preparations.
The manager was beset with the same problem when a failed loan move for Bryan Ruiz to Levante ran aground.
But Symons insists dealing with all three’s problems is what he’s paid to do.
The manager said: “As and when it happens I’ll face it.
“They don’t teach that on your coaching courses. Man management is vital, and it’s a similar situation to Bryan who didn’t want to be here.
“But I spoke to him several times and he put in several good performances last season.
“You need to make the best of your assets, and if they’re going to be in the building with us you have to maximise the use of a good player.
“Management is about tricky conversations and you need to have them."
