Olympiakos are reportedly not willing to part ways with Mady Camara if Watford fail to meet their valuation of the midfielder.

According to a report from Greek publication SDNA, Olympiakos are holding out for a £17.12 million fee from Watford to sell their star midfielder Mady Camara.

The report reveals that the Hornets’ initial bid for the 22-year-old was under £8.56 million which was rejected by the Greek outfit. However, Javi Gracia’s side are reportedly willing to go as high as £9.42 million to acquire the services of the Guinean but Olympiakos aren’t prepared to let him go for anything below £17.12 million.

The Hornets failed in their bid to secure a 7th place finish in the Premier League after defeats to Wolves and Chelsea in the last few games. Javi Gracia will need to keep his fantastic squad together but he might face a huge problem in the summer. 

Watford have been unsure about the future of Abdoulaye Doucoure since last summer’s transfer window and, if they lose the Frenchman this summer, they will need a perfect replacement. Mady Camara has the qualities in him to fill the boots of Doucoure next season and Watford should up their offer to secure his services in the summer.

Camara has been brilliant for Olympiakos this season having scored 6 goals in 24 league games. That is an outstanding return for someone who has mainly featured in a defensive midfield position this season.

Watford will have a real gem on their hands if they can manage to convince the Greek giants to sell Camara in the summer and their hopes of a top-seven finish could well become a reality next season.
