OLYMPIACOS has reached an agreement with Nottingham Forest to sign Joao Carvalho, reports say.
That’s according to International Gate 7, who reports that Carvalho will put pen to paper on the Greek champions at the end of the week.
The Greek giants, who are also owned by Forest supremo Evangelos Marinakis, are looking to add some creativity in midfield during the January transfer window.
Coach Pedro Martins has been without key player Kostas Fortounis since the summer due to a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.
Aguibou Camara is on international duty with Guinea, who have reached the last 16 of Africa and therefore Martins will be out without him until the end of the month.
There is also great belief that Camara will move to the Premier League in the summer after attracting interest from Liverpool, Leicester and Newcastle.
Former France international Mathieu Valbuena is also another option for the No 10 role but is already 37 years old.
Olympiacos have been following Carvalho since 2019 following his impressive start at the City Ground.

The player joined Forest from Benfica in 2018 following a €15m (£12.5m) deal between the two clubs.
The Portuguese stood out in his first season with the Championship, scoring a total of four goals and eight assists in 40 appearances.
However, the 24-year-old has since declined in form and that is why Nottingham sent him on loan to Almeria last season.
Carvalho has scored just two goals in eight games in all competitions for Steve Cooper’s side this term.
The versatile midfielder, who can also play on the wing, is keen to join Olympiacos, where he will also get to play in Europe as the club have been a mainstay in the Champions League and Europa League for the past 15 years.
