Tornike Shengelia will soon become the new player of Panathinaikos, according to the Greek media.
After the failed negotiations with Jan Veseli, the “Greens” quickly launched an offensive against the Georgian basketball player, and Jorgos Zakas from the SDNA portal reports today that they are close to securing his signature.
Zakas claims that Toko Shengelia has accepted the offer from the Athenian giants, but that the deal is still not over as Shengelia is negotiating with the leaders of Virtus as he is still under contract with the Bologna club.
Let’s remind, “Eurohoops” reported yesterday that Virtus is willing to let him go without compensation, if the interested party takes over his contract of 2,000,000 euros for the next season.
Let us remind you that Shengelia averaged 9.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists per match in the Euroleague last season.
