Watford willing to sell Olympiacos target Philip Zinckernagel after Nottingham Forest loan | The Sun

WATFORD are willing to sell Philip Zinckernagel amid transfer interest from Olympiacos.

Zinckernagel has returned to Vicarage Road after helping Nottingham Forest win Premier League promotion during a successful loan stint.

However, SunSport understands that the Hornets are "open to selling him" in the summer transfer window after the Hertfordshire outfit was relegated to the Championship.

Olympiacos, who are also owned by Forest bigwig Evangelos Marinakis, are looking to add some spark in the wings after a bittersweet campaign.

The Piraeus giants won the league in dominant fashion but struggled to impress on the pitch.

And the Greek champions are actively trying to sign Zinckernagel, who has a contract with Watford until 2026.

Zinckernagel joined Watford from Bodo/Glimt in January 2021 and has since amassed a total of one goal and five assists in 21 appearances.
