Cape Town - Keagan Dolly is said to be a target for Greek giants Olympiacos after it emerged the Mamelodi Sundowns star has around a R12 million buy-out clause in his current deal with the Brazilians.

The 23-year-old was in some inspired form for Sundowns last season as a part of a deadly front three combination featuring Dolly, Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat.

The winger also caught the eye at the Rio Olympics with some of his performances for the South Africa under-23 national team. Most notably the player stood out during his side's 0-0 draw with Brazil.

In addition, Dolly's stock seems to be rising with scouts from the Austrian Bundesliga recently monitoring his performances as well.

Nonetheless, Soccer Laduma sources have revealed that the player has close to a R12 million buy-out clause in his contract at Sundowns, and that Olympiacos are willing to meet the asking price.

If the Greek giants do pay the R12 million buy-out fee, a deal could potentially go through if personal terms are agreed.

A 'Downs official confirmed that some interest has been shown in Dolly following his good form for South Africa at the Rio Olympics.

The club's communications co-ordinator, Thulani Thuswa, said, "We have heard the talk of the general interest, and it comes as no surprise after he impressed in Brazil at the Olympics."
