Olympiakos have joined the race to Hull City striker Abel Hernandez, according to the Greek news outlet Sportdog.gr.

The 27-year-out is out of contract in June meaning he could leave the Tigers on a free transfer. The Championship have offered him a new deal to stay at the KCOM Stadium but he is believed to be weighing up his options.

Hernandez has been side-lined for much of this season due to injury but has 8 goals in the 10 games he has played for the Tigers. He managed 22 goals the last time Hull were in the Championship to help fire them to promotion to the Premier League in 2016. He is one of the most prolific strikers in the league and Hull will not want to lose him for nothing.

Greek side Olympaikos have joined the race to sign and will have to compete with clubs from Serie A to sign him. Hernandez is constantly linked with a move back to Italy, whilst Scottish Premier League side Celtic have also been mentioned in recent months.

Hernandez, who has made 27 caps for Uruguay, joined Hull City in 2014 from Palermo for around £10 million. He initially struggled adapting to life in England and only scored 4 goals in his first season in the Premier League. However, since his move his overall record has been an impressive 39 goals in 111 appearances.

Hull City have a number of key players out of contract next month, including David Meyler, Seb Larsson and Allan McGregor, as well as Hernandez and could lose them all.
