According to reports and an official announcement by the club, Greece international Panagiotis Tachtsidis appears to be extremely close to a move to Olympiacos. Just a while ago, Olympiacos’ official spokesman Konstantinos Karapapas confirmed the rumors and stated that Tachtsidis will undergo the necessary medical tests later today and sign with the club.
Tachtsidis has been linked to Olympiacos in the past but his name has not appeared in the Erythrolefki’s transfer gossip this season, springing an element of surprise with these recent developments. The midfielder will be Olympiacos' fourth signing of the summer after Risvanis, Koutris, and Cisse.
The 26-year old, who has been in Italy since 2010 and his departure from AEK, played last year on loan from Torino at Cagliari in the Serie A making 26-appearances with 6 assists.
Tachtsidis’ signing will not affect Olympiacos’ other moves as the club are still in talks with Nantes for Gillet and with Legia for Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe, who is coach Besnik Hasi’s number one option for the midfield, and in talks.
Finally, Olympiacos will send representatives to Turkey to complete the signing of Emmanuel Emenike of Fenerbahce, who looks to be the club’s player of choice for their attacking line.
