Nottingham Forest are said to be keen to bring Hull City winger Kamil Grosicki to the City Ground this summer.
There’s no doubt that the 30-year-old winger would be an astute addition for the Reds, given his quality. He would be welcomed to the club with open arms.
According to a report in The Sun on Sunday (26/5; Page 69), Martin O’Neill wants the Reds to make a £2.5 million bid for the Polish international.
Grosicki enjoyed another productive campaign at the KCOM Stadium last time out. Under the management of Nigel Adkins, he scored nine goals whilst contributing 12 assists. He’ll be desperate to build on that next season, wherever he is playing his football.
It wouldn’t be surprising if he was towards the top of Martin O’Neill’s list of targets this summer. The Reds should have signing a winger as one of their main priorities. The only stumbling block could be any fee involved.
The Tigers won’t be willing to offload one of their star performers on the cheap. He still has another year left on his contract, and Hull may well be willing to play the long game in negotiations.
‘Would be a quality signing’
Many Forest fans were surprised at the report linking them with one of the division’s most productive wingers last season. They’ve been sharing their excitement over a potential deal on social media over the last few days.

Grosicki would be a quality signing. He was class in Premier league too.
Also think we should keep Karim. He showed some signs of real quality end of the season.#nffc

Grosicki would be a quality addition for us. Probably only got a couple more years in him but is perfect with Appiah coming through #nffc

O’Neill has made no secret of the fact he wants to add to his attacking options this summer. But he may have to clear a few players out, before bringing any in.
The Reds currently have an unbalanced squad, with a number of players that need offloading. At present, there are 32 players contracted for next season. This is despite the fact that majority of sides tend to target a 22-man squad. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see numerous players move on in the coming weeks to accommodate new signings.
If Grosicki was to join Forest, it would be a superb signing. He would be a key component next season in ensuring that the Reds forge a stronger push for promotion to the Premier League.
