Olympiacos reject two bids from OGC Nice for Tsimikas

Nice have been in talks with Olympiacos about signing left-back Konstantinos Tsimikas, but are yet to agree a fee.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Nice offered €10m and €12m to the Greek side, with both bids rejected.

Olympiacos want at least €20m, a fee Nice don’t want to pay anything close to.

The two clubs could meet in the middle at €15m, but that is a feeling rather than a certainty.

The Greeks are in no hurry to sell 24-year-old Tsimikas to Patrick Vieira’s side, knowing he is a valuable asset.

Napoli and Lazio are still in the running, along with a number of Bundesliga clubs.

Olympiacos hope to start an auction in the €20m range, but Nice want to close the deal before it can reach that stage.

Tsimikas has made 27 appearances for Olympiacos this season and is a three-time Greek international.
