Report: Gil Dias could leave Nottingham Forest for Olympiakos

Nottingham Forest fans show their support during the Sky Bet Championship match between Nottingham Forest and Derby County at City Ground on March 11, 2018 in Nottingham, England.

Gil Dias has been inconsistent in the Championship since joining Nottingham Forest from Serie A outfit Fiorentina.

Big things were expected of Gil Dias when he arrived at Nottingham Forest on loan from Fiorentina in the summer.

But, despite kicking off life at the City Ground with a Man of the Match performance and a sublime goal in a 3-1 EFL Cup win against Newcastle United, the Portuguese winger has struggled to make an impact since.

And SDNA believe that Dias could now move from one of Evangelos Marinakis’s clubs to the other during the January transfer window.


It is understood that Olympiakos have made the 22-year-old their top target as the Greek giants aim to add another forward to their squad.

Although a deal is likely to be complicated, given that it would require Forest to cancel his loan deal from Fiorentina beforehand.

The Nottingham Post also claimed last week that the East Midland side were likely to keep Dias at the City Ground, although his compatriot Diogo Goncalves is likely to bid farewell.

Furthermore, with Aitor Karanka gone and Martin O’Neill set to replace him, it remains to be seen whether Dias will be given a new lease of life in the East Midlands.
