Potential Piraeus Return For Torosidis
Greek international right-back Vasilis Torosidis could be in line for a surprising return to Greece for Olympiacos. According to newspaper ‘LiveSport’, the current Bologna defender is rumored to make a return to Piraeus, where he spent seven seasons for the Greek champions before moving to Italy to play for Roma.
Any move back to Olympiacos for ‘El Toro’ hinges on the future of Omar Elabdellaoui. The Norwegian defender is currently on-loan at Hull City under former Olympiacos boss Marco Silva. Elabdellaoui seems to have impressed in his time at Hull, but it could depend on whether Hull can remain in the Premier League for them to pay the €5.5 million buy-out option in the player’s contract.
If Elabdellaoui is snapped up by the English side, then Olympiacos would need to find a replacement right-back and the 31-year-old Torosidis would be perhaps their first-choice. Torosidis is said to welcome a move back to the Erythrolefki where he made nearly 200 appearances in his seven seasons, winning six league titles and four Greek Cups.
