Olympiakos manager Vitor Pereira wants to bolster his defending options and he is closing in on a deal for a central defender.
Pereira’s first choice is his compatriot Luis Neto of Zenit St Petersburg and sources claim that Olympiakos are in advanced talks with his agent over a potential move.
Zenit St Petersburg are keen to sell him as the Portuguese 26-year-old defender does not appear regularly as a first team option.
Also Olympiakos keep close tabs on Lazio Argentinian defender Diego Novaretti. The Italian club are looking to offload the 29-year-old defender in the January transfer window and Olympiakos have opened discussions with his agent trying to clinch a deal.
