Nottingham Forest loanee Gustavo Scarpa has been linked with a return to Brazil in the January window.
Themidfielder is currently on loan at Olympiacos, a club owned by the Reds.
He will spend the season in Greece after falling down the pecking order at the City Ground.
Scarpajoined Forest as a free agent earlier this year after leaving Palmeiras.
He made 10 appearances for Steve Cooper’s side last season but was hampered by injuries and off-field problems as he battled for a starting place.
According to Brazilian media company SBT, the 29-year-old could now return to Palmeiras in early 2024.
Journalist Alvaro Loureiro said on social media that Flamengo had also expressed interest in Scarpa, but would “prefer” to return to his old club.
TheBrazilian signed a three-and-a-half year contract when he joined Forest.
He has played five times for Olympiacos so far, with only one of those appearances coming within the first eleven.
Beforemoving to Greece, he was linked with several other teams this summer, including Palmeiras, Flamengo and Turkish side Besiktas.
But he hinted at the time that he would like to stay on Trentside, writing on Instagram: “Scarpinha very happy here in England,” he wrote.
“May this season be much better than the last.
”The Reds have signed thirteen new players during the summer period.
However, they felt that reducing numbers was as important as tracking incoming revenue.
Scarpa is one of several players currently out on loan as Forest focus on their attempts to break into the Premier League.
