Nottingham Forest’s CEO, Ioannis Vrentzos, is keen to make transfers between the English club and the Greek club Olympiacos, if it can be profitable for both clubs. 

The two clubs are owned by Evangelos Marinakis, which makes it an obvious opportunity to transfer players between the two.  

Speaking to Greek outlet Sport 24 at the end of the season, Vrentzos said: 

“Where there are opportunities for co-transcriptional cooperation that can be profitable to both sides, this is always done with objective criteria.”
