However, SunSport understands the Hornets are “ready to sell him” in the summer transfer window after the Hertfordshire side were relegated to the Championship.

Olympiacos, who are also owned by forestry bigwig Evangelos Marinakis, are looking to add a spark behind the scenes after a bittersweet campaign.

The Piraeus giants won the league in dominant fashion but struggled to impress on the pitch.

And the Greek champions are actively trying to sign Zinckernagel, who has a contract with Watford until 2026.

Olympiacos are looking to strike key deals ahead of their Champions League second round qualifiers.

Pedro Martins’ men are due to face Maccabi Haifa on July 19 in Israel before their return leg on July 26.

Olympiacos have already put the wheels in motion as they close to completing the signing of Sime Vrsaljko, who is expected to leave Altetico Madrid as a free agent.

Zinckernagel joined Watford from Bodo/Glimt in January 2021 and has since racked up a total of one goal and five assists in 21 appearances.


The Danish ace then moved to Nottingham on loan last August where he registered seven goals and 10 assists in 50 appearances in all competitions.

The 27-year-old was established as a key member of Steve Cooper’s side as he helped Forest return to the Premier League after 23 years.
