Nottingham Forest were interested in Kamil Grosicki before Sammy Ameobi was signed on a free transfer from Bolton Wanderers, but there hasn’t been an update on their pursuit of the Hull City man since. The £25k-per-week winger is out of contract in 2020 and is likely to be granted a move this summer as Hull won’t want to lose him for free next year.
Forest should be capitalising on the situation as Ben Osborn & Matty Cash struggled for goals and assists in 2019 and may not be good enough as wide options going into next season. The Reds haven’t made much progress on the Grosicki front, but the recent comments made by Hull manager Grant McCann could see the Reds return for the 31-year-old.
McCann told Hull Live: “If it happens, it happens. At this level of football and when people have good years, there is always interest. It is going to be no different here. Obviously, with me working closely with Lee (Darnbrough) and Ehab (Allam) and the chairman, it is making sure if anything did happen, we have got a plan in place that is going to fall in right directly behind that.”
The Tigers boss has admitted that Grosicki could leave which should put Forest on red alert. The Poland international has contributed 41 goals in 98 games in all competitions for Hull and was outstanding in his second season at the KCOM Stadium too – 39 Championship appearances, nine goals, 12 assists.
Ameobi could turn out to be a good signing for Forest, but the Reds shouldn’t stop there. Grosicki should be on their radar as he would improve the squad and won’t break the bank.
