Olympiakos must up their bid to land Blackburn Rovers attacker Mauro Formica.

Olympiakos must up their bid to land Blackburn Rovers attacker Mauro Formica.

The Lancashire Telegraph says Rovers are asking for at least £3.5million for Argentine playmaker Formica – with Olympiakos’ attempts to get the 23-year-old on the cheap set for failure.

The Greek giants are understood to be ready to pay Rovers £2.5million for him in the summer, first taking him on loan until the end of the season.

Brazilian outfit Flamengo also yesterday joined the race for the in-demand Formica and are ready to attempt to sign him permanently now.
