Oympiakos have lined up recently released Arsenal stalwart Mathieu Flamini as a priority signing, according to a report.

The combative midfielder, 32, is currently without a club after his Emirates deal expired at the end of June and is looking for a new side.

French outlet Le Phoceen claim that the Greek giants are actively working on a deal to sign the former France international after Foot Mercato reported that Marseille were keen on signing him.

The former Marseille man signed for the Gunners in 2004, before joining AC Milan four years later. After five years in Italy, the French international rejoined Arsene Wenger’s side in 2013 for a second spell.

 In total, Flamini spent seven years at Arsenal in two separate spells and made 242 first-team appearances.

According to Supers CommesseChampionship giants Leeds United are also interested in a making a move for the billionaire, who has made a fortune by owning a company that produces a chemical that could save the planet and it has entered a market worth £20billion.

However, a move back to old side Marseille could be too tempting to turn down for Flamini, who has a wealth of experience with over 388 professional appearances and three FA Cups to his name.

In other Arsenal transfer news, this former Manchester United goal-getter could be making his way to the Emirates.
