Watford’s Philip Zinckernagel is ‘millimetres’ away from sealing a switch to Olympiacos, according to BT in Denmark.
The Hornets took the winger from Bodø/Glimt in January 2021 and loaned him out to Nottingham Forest last season, where he managed to get six goals and seven assists in the league as Steve Cooper’s side achieved promotion to the Premier League.
Nottingham Forest are owned by Evangelos Marinakis, who also happen to own the Greek club.
The latter have been clearly the most eager suitor to sign the 27-year-old in the summer window, even though Beşiktaş, clubs in Italy and France tried to lure him.
The report states the Denmark international will be expected to sign a deal that will initial run for three years, if things go as per the plan today, and, should that happen, the Watford player will look forward to having a significant raise in his salary.
It’s claimed Zinckernagel is ‘currently on his way’ to Greece, where he is set to sort out the last details of the deal.
He is then expected to undergo medical tests on Thursday and then join Olympiacos’ training camp in Austria.
BT, however, does not mention the fee Watford will earn from Zinckernagel’s sale to the Greek club.
