According to The Sun (h/t Nottinghamshire Live), Nottingham Forest are considering a £2.5m bid for Kamil Grosicki. With Gil Dias’ loan spell at the City Ground being cut short and the Reds opting against turning Diogo Goncalves’ loan move permanent this summer, Martin O’Neill needs another left-winger to compete with Ben Osborn for a starting place.

Grosicki impressed for Hull City last season, scoring nine goals and making 12 assists in 39 Championship games. The 30-year-old racked up 3005 minutes of football in the second tier, making 73 chances, 36 successful dribbles (37%), averaging 24 passes-per-game with 67% accuracy, whipping in 207 crosses with 21% accuracy and averaging a tackle (19) or interception (16) every 86 minutes.

The Polish international has only 12 months remaining on his deal at the KCOM Stadium, meaning Hull could lose him for nothing in 2020 if they fail to agree a contract extension. Silly Season and FIFA believe Grosicki’s wages range between £0.94m-a-year/£18k-per-week and £1.2m-a-year/£22.5k-per-week, so Forest may have to pay around £1m-a-year salary to convince him to the East Midlands.

Hull might consider cashing in on the left-winger this summer if they fail to make progress with a new deal, meaning Forest stand a genuine chance of signing the in-form player.
