Olympiakos make official approach for Diamond and Kovac
I for one cant understand why you would want to get rid of a player like Diamanti, he can take a penalty, freekick and was our second highest scorer and hardly played!! He must of pissed the wrong people off.
have opened talks with Olympiakos over selling midfield duo Alessandro Diamanti and Radoslav Kovac.
New boss Avram Grant is closing in on several new signings including Mexico winger Pablo Barrera, but with the club £90million in debt he must sell to generate funds for further transfers.
Grant is looking to overhaul a squad that narrowly avoided relegation from the Barclays Premier League last season, and both Diamanti, 27, and Kovac, 30, are surplus to requirements.
And Greek giants Olympiakos have now made an official approach for the pair, according to The Mirror.
Meanwhile, the club are desperate to hold on to captain and star asset Scott Parker, despite reported interest from Aston Villa.
