Roberto Martinez could be managing in the Champions League next season as Olympiacos plan a move for the Wigan boss.

The Greek club are on the hunt for a new boss after it was announced their Spanish manager Ernesto Valverde is leaving this summer.

Martinez would be offered a two-year deal, a much-improved pay deal than he receives from the Latics plus the chance to show of his managerial skills against the best Europe has to offer in the Champions League Group.

Olympiacos sporting director Darko Kovacevic has drawn up the shortlist which also includes Valencia boss Unai Emery and Getafe coach Luis Garcia.
