Leonardo Jardim is reportedly poised to take charge of Olympiakos, just days after parting company with Sporting Braga by mutual consent.
According to A Bola, the 37-year-old Portuguese will fly to Greece on Monday accompanied by his manager Mohamed Afzal and a lawyer to thrash out a deal with the Piraeus-based outfit.
The Greek side are looking for a new coach following the departure of Spaniard Ernesto Valverde, who stepped down at the end of the season for family reasons.
Jardim is on the market, even though he is just coming off the back of a fine campaign with Braga in which he led the club to a third-placed finish in the Liga Sagres, which secured them a place in the Champions League qualifiers.
However, the former Beira-Mar boss, who only arrived at the Estadio Municipal last summer, endured a fractious relationship with club president Antonio Salvador and his contract was terminated by mutual agreement earlier this week.
