Nottingham Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis has made an offer for ESTAC Troyes

Le 10 Sport report that Greek businessman and owner of Championship side Nottingham Forest and Greek giants Olympiakos Evangelos Marinakis has submitted a proposal to purchase Ligue 2 club ESTAC Troyes from Daniel Masoni.

After discussions with Chien Lee about the sale of the same club several weeks ago, the ex-OGC Nice owner has since turned his attention to purchasing Ligue 1 strugglers Toulouse FC.

Negotiations between Masoni and Marinakis have accelerated in recent days, with the latter individual making a €12m proposal to purchase the French side.

Unfortunately, discussions have been slowed somewhat after both individuals met in London at the beginning of this month, just days before Marinakis was diagnosed with COVID-19, leading to both individuals self-isolating for the foreseeable future.
