UI-JO SET FOR OLYMPIAKOS LOAN MOVE

South Korean attacker Hwang Ui-Jo is on the verge of joining Greek Super League giants Olympiakos on loan for this season. This is according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano who said the South Korean international will sign for Olympiakos as a Nottingham Forest player.

Nottingham Forest are one of the three newly promoted teams in the Premier League alongside the duo of Fulham and Bournemouth. They have made a lot of signings in the transfer market this summer. As a matter of fact, they are one of the biggest spenders in European football as far as this summer’s transfer window is concerned. It has been reported that Nottingham Forest are closing in on a deal to sign Hwang Ui-Jo from French side Bordeaux for £4m before he's loaned to Olympiakos in the Greek league. Nottingham Forest and Olympiakos have the same owner, AngelosMarinakis who's a native of Greece.

FOREST HERO AND TWO EX-REDS SUFFER CHAMPIONS LEAGUE NIGHTMARE

Nottingham Forest promotion winner Philip Zinckernagel and ex-Reds duo Joao Carvalho and Andreas Bouchalakis are out of the Champions League. The trio were all involved as Olympiacos were dumped out of the competition by Maccabi Haifa. After a 1-1 draw in Israel, the Evangelos Marinakis-owned team were hugely fancied to finish the job on home soil. The Champions League dream became a nightmare though, with Olympiacos on the wrong end of a 4-0 thrashing.

Goals from former QPR man Tjaronn Chery, two from Frantzdy Pierrot and a late goal from Mohammad Abu Fani ensure a night of misery. Pedro Martins might have some explaining to do. Marinakis is proud of the club’s Champions League inclusion and this won’t do. All is not lost for the club. Their defeat means they will now enter the Europa League in the third qualifying round.

RANGERS FACE COMPETITION FROM OLYMPIACOS IN RACE FOR THEO BONGONDA

Rangers want to sign Theo Bongonda from Belgian side KRC Genk, but face competition from Greek champions Olympiacos for his signature according to Georgios Sideridis. The Gers are on the verge of completing a deal for Wales winger Rabbi Matondo [BILD, July 11] to add to the arrivals of John Souttar, Antonio Colak and Tom Lawrence earlier in the window. But reports suggest that Giovanni van Bronckhorst wants another signing in attack too, and it seems as though Bongonda could be the man at the top of the list.

But Sideridis, who was the man who was first with news of Colak’s arrival at Ibrox, claims that they will have to beat both Olympiacos and Turkish giants Fenerbahce to his signature. There is some clearly very talented scouts working at Ibrox right now, and Bongonda is further proof that they’re very good at identifying quality players on a budget. Bongonda is 26-years-old and known for his terrific speed and excellent eye for goal, which has seen him score 13 goals and register five assists in 43 appearances in the 2021/22 season.

PIPA LEAVES HUDDERSFIELD TOWN FOR OLYMPIAKOS

Greek defender Pipa has left English Championship side Huddersfield Town to join Greek champions Olympiakos for an undisclosed fee. Pipa was part of the Huddersfield Town squad who came close to securing Premier League promotion before they were stopped by Nottingham Forest in the Championship playoff final.

New Olympiakos signing Pipa was in the Huddersfield Town team who lost 1-0 to Nottingham Forest in the final of the Championship playoffs. Pipa started the game against the former European champions on the right side of a five-man defence. The new Olympiakos player featured for the entire duration of the game, but he could not save the Terriers from injury. With the win over Huddersfield Town, Nottingham Forest joined Fulham and Bournemouth as the three promoted teams ahead of the new Premier League season.

EVERTON EYE MOVE FOR CRYSTAL PALACE MIDFIELDER LUKA MILIVOJEVIC

Everton are in the mix to sign Crystal Palace midfielder, Luka Milivojevic, according to journalist Gerasimos Manolidis. The Spor Time journalist has reported on Twitter that newly-promoted Fulham are also keen to land the highly experienced Premier League midfielder. Manolidis, who works for Greek newspaper SporTime, wrote on Twitter that there is no chance Luka Milivojevic (will) return to Olympiacos this summer. Most likely, he will leave Crystal Palace, but there are several teams that are interested in him. Fulham and Everton are among them.

Milivojevic is a highly experienced midfielder. He joined the Eagles in 2016 from Olympiacos and has made over 175 appearances for the club in all competitions. He has scored 58 goals in his club career thus far and has also represented the Serbian national team 38 times. The former Red Star Belgrade midfielder saw his game time limited last season under Patrick Vieira and made only 15 appearances in the 2021-22 Premier League campaign.

REPORT: £13M MAN AGREES TO LEAVE CRYSTAL PALACE IN £3M DEAL

According to an exclusive from Greek news outlet Transfer Geeks, Luka Milivojevic has agreed to leave Crystal Palace for Olympiakos.


WHAT’S THE STORY?
Well, after making 176 appearances for the Eagles, it seems the 31-year-old will be leaving Selhurst Park this summer. It comes after Milivojevic was sadly booed by some Crystal Palace supporters – if they can be called that – at the club’s end-of-season awards ceremony. The report states that the Serbia international has agreed to return to Olympiakos in a deal worth just €3.5m (£3m), as he only has 12 months remaining on his contract.

BALDOCK ON CELTIC, OLYMPIAKOS RADAR

Sheffield United defender George Baldock is on the list of transfer targets for both Scottish Premiership giants Celtic and Greek champions Olympiakos. This is according to reports in the British media. Sheffield United News is a trusted media portal in the United Kingdom and it recently confirmed that both Olympiakos and Celtic want to sign Baldock this summer.


Baldock announced himself on the Premier League scene during the penultimate season as he helped the Blades to a remarkable top-ten finish, but he was unable to stop the team from suffering relegation last season. Sheffield United finished at the foot of the Premier League table and they were joined in the English Championship by Fulham and West Brom. As things stand in the English Championship, Baldock and Sheffield United are in the hunt for a place in the playoffs at least in their quest to get back to Premier League football almost immediately.

OLYMPIAKOS KEEN ON BALDOCK TRANSFER

It was revealed that Olympiakos want to sign the Sheffield United defender when this summer's transfer window reopens. Greek media outlet Gazzetta disclosed the interest of Olympiakos in Baldock.


Olympiakos are the reigning Greek Super League champions and they are owned by businessman EvangelosMarinakis. In addition to the Greek champions, Marinakis is also the owner of Nottingham Forest in the English Championship.

LIVERPOOL, MILAN KEEN ON CAMARA – JOURNALIST

Premier League heavyweights Liverpool and Italian Serie A club AC Milan are reportedly interested in the transfer of highly rated Olympiakos midfielder AguibouCamara. This is according to Greek journalist ChalarisNotis who works with BNSports. Notis revealed the interest of both AC Milan and Liverpool in Camara in a chat with Italian transfer news outlet Tuttomercatoweb (TMW) as he said that the Olympiakos star has the ability to invent from scratch and that it's not surprising that big clubs on the European stage want to sign him. The journalist said that Camara is an exceptional talent that could make a big difference in a team which is why both Liverpool and Milan are on his trail.

Milan has invested in a lot of young talents from abroad with the likes of Rafael Leao, Theo Hernandez, Alexis Saelemaekers amongst others and Olympiakos star Camara could be next at the age of 20.Camara has incredible potential and he fits the profile of the player that Milan could sign when the summer's transfer window reopens later in the year. The Rossoneri will have to fend off interest from elsewhere in the shape of Liverpool to sign Camara.
