Nottingham Forest have been linked with a move for Olympiacos midfielder Kostas Fortounis, as per reports from ENWSI.
Fortounis has been a key player for Olympiacos this season, scoring four goals and registering seven assists in 13 league appearances.
In fact, the midfielder has scored 74 goals and added 71 assists in a total of 237 appearances for Olympiacos – a club who Forest know well due to the links with Evangelos Marinakis.
Fortounis has also made 51 appearances for Greece, picking up plenty of caps for his national side.
But according to ENWSI, Fortounis’ relationship with Olympiacos boss Pedro Martins has become fractious, and the manager has reportedly asked for him to be sent to the City Ground.
Chris Hughton has spoken numerous times about wanting to add creativity to his side this month, with Forest struggling to find the back of the net on a consistent basis this season.
The club have been linked with West Brom’s Filip Krovinovic, and with Fortounis now being linked, an attacking midfielder could be set to arrive.
This would be a quality signing for Fortounis.
He has been a standout performer for Olympiacos this season and has contributed to a goal in nearly every appearance this term.
If he has fallen out with Martins, then you’d be slightly worried about his attitude and what’s caused these problems.
Of course, Olympiacos aren’t strangers to Forest, but some of their players have flattered to deceive when joining in recent years.
