AEK Athens are reportedly interested in Norwich City's out-of-favour striker Nelson Oliveira.

AEK Athens have reportedly made an approach for Norwich City striker Nelson Oliveira.

The 27-year-old featured heavily for the Canaries in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 campaigns, scoring 19 goals in 65 Championship appearances, but fell out of favour with boss Daniel Farke and was farmed out on loan to rivals Reading last term.

The Portuguese is thought to have already played his final game for Norwich - now promoted back to the Premier League - and the club are open to offers for his services.

According to Greek publication Iapropsi, Superleague side AEK Athens are prepared to match Oliveira's £20,000-a-week wages for the final year of his Norwich contract if they take him on loan and are also interested in the possibility of a permanent move.

The Royals are also thought to be tentatively interested, although with finances tight they would have to offload several players in order to afford him.

Oliveira cut his teeth in his homeland with Benfica and had loan spells with Swansea City and Nottingham Forest before making the permanent move to Carrow Road.
